During a discussion about the difficulty boys have talking to their fathers about mental health prolems James McVey phoned in with his views.

James told Iain that the mental health problems boys face starts very young, in primary school, where “gender stereotypes” are forced on them and they are told there is a correct way to be, even it goes against their feelings.

“Boys don’t cry when you fall over, or people tell guys to ‘man up’.

“It’s that whole notion that men should be strong, emotionless and not appear weak.”

He believes this all makes men “reclusive” with their emotions and “scared to say how they feel” and that the answer is for men to “go against the gender constructs” and be open and honest about how they feel.
