BROS & DEPRESSION

USEFUL PODCASTS FOR BROS, MENTAL HEALTH AND SUICIDE

Bro, here is a list of recommended podcasts I have sourced which talks about mental health, particularly for men. While talking about mental health, therapy and mental illness is still relatively taboo across several communities globally, there are some incredible trailblazers out there who are helping to break the stigma. The more we speak up about these topics, the less taboo they become. What better way to openly talk about mental health to a large audience than through a podcast? Check them out, and do send me a message if you have come across podcasts that you recommend that we add to this page for your fellow Bros. Click on the podcast name or icon to access them.

Some of the things spoken about in these podcasts, particularly around depression and suicide, may be distressing to some of you. If you or someone you know find this content distressing and require assistance, please contact the mental health support and suicide helpline in your respective city from our BROS Global Referrals Page here. If your city is not listed, Google "emergency + depression + suicide + helpine + your city".
