We Have A Problem With Men's Mental Health

By many measures, men aren't doing so well right now. Suicides and deaths of despair among men are rising. 15% of men report having no close friends. In a recent survey, 65% reported agreeing with the statement, "no one really knows me well." Men have fallen behind women when it comes to educational attainment, and most young men report feeling no sense of purpose.

So, what's going on here?

Matt Jeneroux thinks we have, among other things, a communication problem, and he joins us on this episode to explain why. Matt is the Member of Parliament for Edmonton Riverbend, the Shadow Minister for Supply Chains, and the founder of the Hi Dad Foundation, a non-profit set up to provide resources for young men and fathers in need of mental health support.
