On the Wednesday morning conversation January 26th, Mike Mondo asked men why they don’t seek therapy for stress.
He wondered why men keep their emotions bottled up rather than opening up tot heir wives or even friends.
‘Me i cant keep quiet. I usually go to therapy once every three months’
Mwalimu his co host said men don’t open up because they fear being gossiped about.
Mike responded that ‘a problem shared is a problem halved. Why cant you talk to a therapist, talk to your fellow man and get it sorted out?’
Mondo opened up the discussion to the Classic 105 audience who told of their challenges.
A man called in and told Mike and Mwalimu that ‘men stay taliban. I tell you I only see therapists when i was doing biology mimi in real life they don’t apply. I became a young father at a young age, I agreed, so I’ve been going through alot, niko bedsitter, and the moment you try to open up to anyone that is opening a problem to another problem. there is no need to go to a therapist hata nisaidia, mwanaume ni kuvumilia’
A woman urged men to take their mental health seriously.
@jennykanyiri said ‘No wonder most men are committing suicide nowadays due to depression after things piles up till the mind can’t hold the pressure anymore,so sad’
Dear Classic 105 fam, do you encourage your men to open up and take care of their mental health?
