Expert reveals the warning signs of male mental health issues including the loss of appetite and struggling to sleep - and the practical steps you can take to help
Male mental health is once again in the news following the suicide of Love Island star Mike Thalassitis, who was just 26-years-old when he tragically took his own life last week.
But while many of us are concerned about how it might affect the men in our lives, we might not be aware of the warning signs we should be looking out for.
Dr Mark Winwood, director of psychological services at AXA PPP healthcare, from the UK, speaks exclusively to Femail about the red flags that might give you cause for concern, and what steps you can take if you recognise any in your loved ones.
Dr Winwood says that your boyfriend or husband could act out of character, or display a range of varying emotions:
'It could be anger, irritability and aggressiveness, or they could struggle to show or feel positive emotions.
The Fear of Reaching Out
The word, “Crazy” is thrown around quite a bit in our American society.
Hollywood movies depict depraved serial killers with a perceived mental illness, murdering scores of innocent (Typically neurotypical protagonists)
The entertainment industry seems to have quite a hold on many different labels of people, and people living with mental illness are not disqualified from that.
For instance, I was diagnosed with mental illness back in 2004 and it changed my life for the worst. I lack energy, I get depressed, I have trouble finding and keeping work, and the majority of my time goes into writing and keeping up with mental health appointments. But back to the point, I have never even hit anyone in my life, and I know scores of others living with mental illness who are the most compassionate people I’ve ever met. Hollywood has a way of playing on ignorance, and judging by comments left about films like these, our culture is very ignorant about mental health/mental illness.

A former kennel owner was indicted in Virginia this week on multiple counts of bestiality and animal cruelty, according to reports.
The charges include an allegation that Richard Patterson, 48, and his wife, Christina Patterson, 42, both from Suffolk, had the front toenails of a male dog removed so they could more easily have sex with the animal, according to court documents.
This Instagram Shames Men for Being Absolute Monsters on Dating Apps
It’s a tale as old as the internet: when Alexandra Tweten would log into her online dating accounts, she’d occasionally get messages from random guys that made her uneasy. Sometimes it’d be an unsolicited dick pic. Other times the messages themselves were lewd or creepy right off the bat. “I just wouldn’t respond, or I’d think, ‘No, thanks. I'm not interested,’” Tweten tells VICE over the phone. “And then they got hostile.”
Where Are All Of The Pro-Choice Men?
Abortion rights and reproductive freedom are in jeopardy like never before. The Trump administration has proposed radical cutbacks to Title X, the nation’s only federal grant for family planning services. And now, with the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade and the right to safe, legal abortion are in imminent danger. A recently leaked email revealed that Kavanaugh once disputed the description of Roe v. Wade as “settled law” and said it could be easily overruled.
The American people have not been silent in their opposition to Trump and his decidedly anti-abortion Supreme Court nominee. Protests and demonstrations have been ongoing since Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings began on Tuesday. People are standing outside the hearing room holding signs or wearing T-shirts or “Handmaid’s Tale” costumes. Some are even interrupting the hearing itself.
But almost all of the protesters are women.
Masturbation Matters: 15 Better Ways to Get Off
A good jack-off falls somewhere between agony and prayer. In the shower, I make the same face Mary makes in Bernini sculptures. Panting, my face against the door, I nearly whisper, “Thank you, lord.”
Some people consider masturbation a second-tier sexual experience. We’ve all heard the “sad jack-off story.” After a night of fruitless cruising, your buddy settled for his hand.
There is a problem in the way we talk about self-pleasure. Self-care is often seen as shameful, embarrassing, or unimportant in our social-obsessed culture. But self-pleasure is something nearly everyone does, something everyone should do, and something we could all do better. Masturbation matters because your body matters. Because pleasure is healthy.
Let me lend a hand. Browse these 15 ways to get the most out of your solo time.
Planned Parenthood cancels abortions in Arkansas after restrictive law is reinstated
Planned Parenthood has been canceling abortion appointments for women in Arkansas this week, after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a challenge to a state law restricting the procedure.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday effectively let Arkansas' law restricting medication abortions — in which women are given pills that cause a process similar to a miscarriage in the early stages of pregnancy — go back into effect, making Arkansas the only state to restrict use of the abortion pills.
Republican Men Are Against Abortion — Until They Want Their Mistress To Get One
For the GOP, the party of "family values," few things are more destructive to the family — the "bedrock of our nation" — than abortion. Republican men in Congress have made banning legal and safe abortion a cornerstone of their platform, pushing policy that restricts access to the procedure time and time again, as the "sanctity of life" of an unborn fetus is paramount to America's future.
That's all well and good — unless said Republican wants the woman he's having an affair with to get an abortion.
Cosby, Weinstein, Trump and O'Reilly orgy painting shocks VIP guests including Julianne Moore and Brooke Shields
China said she’s considering offering her painting to amfAR for the charity’s May 17 gala in Cannes, France, to combat AIDS. AmfAR has looked to distance itself from former supporters Weinstein and shoe designer Kenneth Cole because of questionable fund-raising activities involving the pair, which led to Cole’s resignation as a board member in February.

There’s Only One Correct Way to Measure a Penis
If you were paying attention to the headline-grabbing work of pioneering sexologist Alfred Kinsey in the years after World War Two, you would have learned that the average length of an erect penis is around 6.21” while the average girth is 4.85". Because Kinsey and his team were the first to get granular over penis size, and the first to be famous for conducting such titillating research, these figures enjoyed incredible staying power over the subsequent decades. I posit that this 70-year-old data set’s notoriety—along with the ubiquity of porn and the rumored existence of Jared Leto’s formidable trouser schnauzer—may share the responsibility for the prevalence of Short Penis Syndrome or Penile Dysmorphic Disorder.
The Y chromosome is disappearing – so what will happen to men?
The Y chromosome may be a symbol of masculinity, but it is becoming increasingly clear that it is anything but strong and enduring. Although it carries the “master switch” gene, SRY, that determines whether an embryo will develop as male (XY) or female (XX), it contains very few other genes and is the only chromosome not necessary for life. Women, after all, manage just fine without one.
What’s more, the Y chromosome has degenerated rapidly, leaving females with two perfectly normal X chromosomes, but males with an X and a shrivelled Y. If the same rate of degeneration continues, the Y chromosome has just 4.6m years left before it disappears completely. This may sound like a long time, but it isn’t when you consider that life has existed on Earth for 3.5 billion years.
Men Accused of Sexual Misconduct Are Still Benefiting From Their Restaurants
As chefs and restaurateurs “step away from day-to-day operations” following sexual misconduct allegations, their restaurant groups are left to figure out how to recover. There isn’t a single path forward, according to a new report from the New York Times, and the groups once led by Mario Batali, Ken Friedman, John Besh, and Charlie Hallowell are all struggling to repair damaged reputations and toxic cultures — oftentimes, while the bad actors still have financial ties to the group.
After Eater NY broke news of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against Batali, the chef announced he would “step away” from Batali & Bastianich Hospitality Group and its restaurants. In a letter sent to staff a few days later, the group announced that it would change its name and that its female partners, Nancy Silverton and Lidia Bastianich, would be taking on greater leadership roles in an effort to improve the culture at B&B restaurants.
However, Batali remains financially linked to some of the group’s high-profile restaurants, like Babbo and Del Posto, and according to Joe Bastianich, it’s unclear whether or not that tie will be severed. “

'Asian' Restaurant Changes Name After Charges of Racism and Misogyny
Ryan Vermaak and Fabio di Cosmo, two aspiring restaurateurs based in Johannesburg, South Africa, failed to see anything wrong with naming their yet-to-open “Asian restaurant” Misohawni. “Don’t you just love the name?” the pair tweeted yesterday. (Their Twitter bio says that Misohawni is ‘Cumming Soon’.)
The name is a phonetic spelling of a phrase used by a Vietnamese prostitute in the 1987 war film Full Metal Jacket. In the scene, the woman approaches two American soldiers and propositions them for sex. One of them says he’ll only pay her $10, before posing for a photo with her and calling her a “[racial slur] whore.”
Are You an Asshole If You Ask Your Partner to Lose Weight?
"Is there any right way to ask someone to lose weight for you?" That's the question a guy anonymously asked the world via a recent Humans of New York feature. The world was quick to inform him that no, it's not okay to ask your significant other to lose weight for you, especially when it's simply for the sake of losing weight.
“At first I told myself I could get past it. I said, ‘Let’s just see how it goes,'" the HONY Facebook post began. "Everything else about her was exactly what I wanted. I didn’t want to ruin something good for that one little reason. But it’s been 1.5 years. And I feel horrible, but I just can’t get past it. And I feel like a bad person for being bothered by it."
