Bill Bridges has faced his own depression and suicidal thoughts, but came through them, in large part because of a willingness to face emotions that most men find hard to handle. In this presentation, he explains why men struggle with emotions, why they kill themselves in staggering numbers (even though research shows more women think about suicide), and what each man can do if he feels himself slipping into despair.

The term "toxic masculinity" is seemingly everywhere, although it's difficult to find consensus on what the term means, why it's bad, and what can or should be done in connection to it.

He explains what "hope" can look like for men and how each man can, and should, define what masculinity means to him. MORE >
