Mental Health & Gender (feat. Hannah Hart)

Mental Health and Gender (feat. Hannah Hart)

YouTubers, Kati Morton and Hannah Hart talk about gender and mental health. Hart specifically brings up a problem that men often have with mental illness; and that is that they are afraid to ask for help or seek any treatment because that is thought of as “feminine weakness.” Morton brings up a good point as well.  Women are usually the only ones who are thought of as hormonal, but men also experience hormonal fluctuations throughout the day as well; testosterone rises during the evening, and begins to decline in the morning, making the lowest testosterone time around two to three in the afternoon. That is a very common time for naps. My father, for example, takes a nap every day at that time and is totally useless without it.
