As part of this year’s World Mental Health Day activities, TELL is pleased to be hosting a screening of The Mask You Live In, a 2015 documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. This documentary follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.
For too long, the stigma around men’s mental health has been a silent killer. All around the world men feel ashamed to admit vulnerability, creating so many barriers to having a simple conversation with their friends, family or colleagues about their real feelings. This leads to muted suffering, even when we know talking about these things is important to recovery, leaving men and boys becoming isolated self-medicating, struggling with anger and ultimately suicide.
We hope you can join us to discuss the culture of masculinity, and what we can do to create a healthier society for all, regardless of gender.
The screening will be held at the Azabu Kumin Center 5-6-45 Roppongi Minato –ku on October 10th and the doors will open at 18:30, the screening will start from 19:00.
