Fingerpaint Group Launches Campaign to Help Men See Therapy as a Strength

Article

Fingerpaint Group has launched Unf*ck Your Feelings, a social campaign focused on encouraging men, specifically between the ages of 18 and 30, to seek mental health resources when they need it. Timed to coincide with Men's Health Awareness Month, the campaign uses social media influencers to demonstrate the benefits of seeking help and provides a comprehensive list of mental health resources, such as the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Insight Timer, mental health providers, crisis hotlines, online support groups, and more at www.unfckyourfeelings.com.

National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Data Brief suggests that men's resistance to therapy is literally killing them. Men have 4 times the rate of suicide as women according to the NCHS data. Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Health Interview Survey reports that only 1 in 4 men who feel anxious or depressed have talked to a mental health professional.
