How are you?”, or one of its many derivatives, is probably the most commonly asked question in the English language.
A throw-away pleasantry usually responded to with the equally vacuous, “I’m fine."
The problem is, for a lot of young men, that’s often just not true.
From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans aged 35 to 64 increased nearly 30 percent. The largest increases were among men in their fifties, with rates rising nearly 50 percent, and for women aged 60 to 64, with rates rising 60 percent. ... The annual age-adjusted suicide rate is 13.26 per 100,000 individuals.
So what the hell is going on inside our heads that leads us to take the ultimate step with such frightening regularity? The answer is actually quite simply: nobody knows, because we stubbornly refuse to talk to about it.
As the suicide rates for men continue to climb, it’s fast becoming a crisis and, participating in a community where it’s safe enough to express yourSELF, to be vulnerable without judgment has been proven to be a significant influence in the suicide prevention of men.
The past 50 years have redefined what it means to be female in America. Girls today are told that they can do anything, be anyone. They’ve absorbed the message: They’re outperforming boys in school at every level. But it isn’t just about performance. To be a girl today is to be the beneficiary of decades of conversation about the complexities of womanhood, its many forms and expressions. Boys, though, have been left behind. No commensurate movement has emerged to help them navigate toward a full expression of their gender. It’s no longer enough to “be a man”....we no longer even know what that means...
