    Mrs May announced today that mental health reforms are going to focus on young people...young women in particular...with no reference to men.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38548567

    How do you guys (boys/men in particular) feel about this especially considering that you live in a country where:

    - men account for 80% of mental health disorders amongst vulnerable populations such as the homeless.
    - men are 4 times more likely to commit suicde than women
    - suicide is the biggest killer of young men.
    - men are 4 times less likely to report and gain access to psychological health treatments as compared to women and so the number of men suspected of having mental health disorders is thought to be much higher than that of women.

    There's no mention in that article that the reforms will focus on young women. Where are you getting that information from?

    Such a shame to see May give in to the horrid victim rhetoric spouted by feminists. Women are already mollycoddled by the state, they don't need any extra support. Young men are getting left further and further behind.
