Mind Matters: Why He Won't Talk About His Health Problems

In conjunction with Movember, which puts the spotlight on men’s health, we explore the male psyche when it comes to addressing men's health problems. Together with Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin, Consultant Psychiatrist and Wong Kuan Sing, President, Prostate Cancer Society Malaysia, we look at the psychological and emotional aspects driving, or inhibiting, men's health-seeking behaviours. We explore how men cope when faced with a difficult diagnosis like prostate cancer, and what kind of support they need.
