Now one of the issues we have is that we just don’t know how to talk about our health. If we have man flu we tend to announce it to the world as we are just shy of dying and, as a result no kids will be washed and housework, well you can forget about that, its the couch and hot whiskeys for us.

How to recognize symptoms of possible mental issues

More importantly though is the issue of our Mental Health. This tends to ly in the shadows with us blokes and, to be honest, we really don’t know how to talk about it, let alone deal with it. Recently we have had the likes of Bressie highlighting the issue and of course organisations like Aware are at the forefront of publicising the issue.

There’s no absolute in these things but we have compiled a list of some of the factors you might want to look out for if you are not feeling the best or have any worries about your mental health.

Withdrawal — Recent social withdrawal and loss of interest in others

Drop in functioning — An unusual drop in functioning, at school, work or social activities, such as quitting sports, failing in school or difficulty performing familiar tasks

Problems thinking — Problems with concentration, memory or logical thought and speech that are hard to explain

Increased sensitivity — Heightened sensitivity to sights, sounds, smells or touch; avoidance of over-stimulating situations

Apathy — Loss of initiative or desire to participate in any activity

Feeling disconnected — A vague feeling of being disconnected from oneself or one’s surroundings; a sense of unreality

Illogical thinking — Unusual or exaggerated beliefs about personal powers to understand meanings or influence events; illogical or “magical” thinking typical of childhood in an adult

Nervousness — Fear or suspiciousness of others or a strong nervous feeling

Unusual behavior – Odd, uncharacteristic, peculiar behavior

Sleep or appetite changes — Dramatic sleep and appetite changes or decline in personal care.

Mood changes — Rapid or dramatic shifts in feelings

Now remember this is not a definitive list its just a, you know, indicator and as always if you feel or think you might have an issue, (you will know yourself if you do), just talk to someone, be it a GP or a mate but don’t ignore it.
