In this episode, Amee talks with Dr. Nathaan Demers. He is the VP & Director of Clinical Programs at Grit Digital Health, the team behind ManTherapy.org. Grit Digital Health is a business comprised of specialists in behavioral health, wellness, technology and marketing communications. In the world of mental health, they are doing work transcending barriers like stigmas and creating access points to allow people to get the support they need when they need it.
"Working aged men (25-54 years old) account for the largest number of suicide deaths in the U.S. These men are also the least likely to receive any kind of support. They don't talk about it with their friends. They don't share with their family. And they sure as heck don't seek professional treatment. They are the victims of problematic thinking that says mental health disorders are unmanly signs of weakness."
