Justina, a therapist at a San Diego treatment center for behavioral health, shares with us the roots and challenges of the toxic masculinity narrative, which depicts male mental health as incomplete without recognizing there are needs for men or those identifying. This chat includes how to begin the journey in getting support and realizing your mom or best friend can’t be your guru or might be incomplete in the journey of self-insight. For more on our other podcasts, don’t forget to hear our male mental health podcast on beginning to meditate, why men have a hard time asking for help and the health benefits of NAD therapy.
