- Man Therapy is dedicated to smashing the notion that men shouldn’t talk about their feelings. Working-age men (25-64 years old) account for the largest number of suicide deaths in the United States. These men are the least likely to receive support, and they don’t talk about it with their friends/family or ask for professional treatment. Man Therapy is changing those perspectives.
