Big Boys Don’t Cry? e-book

‘Man up!’, ‘Grow a pair!’ ‘Big boys don’t cry!’ – these are just some of the unhelpful phrases that are still said to boys and men on a daily basis. This book seeks to challenge the stigma of mental illness and encourage men not to man up, but to open up instead.

Old school friends Fabian and Patrick, who have both struggled with their mental health, have collected 60 stories by men with real lived experiences, young and old, from all walks of life and with a range of mental illnesses, who share their experience and advice for other men.

The stories in Big Boys Don’t Cry? are eye-opening and moving, helpful and hopeful, but above all they are empowering for men (and women) who will realise, often for the first time, that others are experiencing the same inner turmoil and pain as them.
