New research commissioned by StrongMen has found that 47% of men don’t share their real emotions due to a lack of confidence and 1 in 4 men bottle up their feelings, suffering from the age old gender stereotype, due to it being unmanly to share them.
The research also found 45% of men find it embarrassing to talk to friends and family and a third citing grief as something they would most struggle to talk about.
In response to the research we are launching ‘Bare Yourself’ a social media campaign, calling on all men to ‘bare themselves’ to raise awareness of how important it is to share, talk and connect with your friends and family.
How to get involved:
Share a tasteful photo of your body you wouldn’t normally have the confidence to show and help @StrongMenOrgUK to support men suffering through grief. Text STRONG to 70085 to
