Toxic masculinity is a social phenomenon that encourages problematic behavior, such as violence and aggression. It also encourages problematic attitudes and beliefs, such as the notion that men should never show emotion. Toxic masculinity contributes to adverse outcomes in mental health for men as it enforces social norms that men don’t need emotional assistance, shouldn’t show emotions, and need to handle issues with physical aggression.
Available Treatment Options
A counselor or therapist can help men address these issues, examine their core beliefs related to masculinity and what that means, and help them resolve to employ coping mechanisms other than violence and emotional avoidance to live their lives more fully.
