Manly Men Cry Too.

Aussie Men Come Together For Male Depression

For the past two weeks, we’ve been trying to push the message that it's OK for men to express their feelings, and it is OK to ask for help if you’re struggling. It all started with Will sitting down with his best mate Woody to talk about his own depression.

Now, we wanted to share something we've been working on since our initial conversation on male depression.

Teaming together with  a string of Aussie celebs, the manliest of men around the country have jumped on board to help remove the stigma around men showing emotion.

You can watch celebrities such as Danny Green, Illy, Peking Duk, Tom Hawkins, Shannon Noll, Pete Murray, Jeremy McGovern, Grant Denyer and Mitch Johnson open up about the last time they cried.

In a raw face-to-camera montage, each Aussie bloke explains his history with showing emotion, be it tears of happiness or sadness.

“My pet lorikeet had died and I instantly went in the water. I was shattered,” explains Danny Green.

 

“When I went and saw my daughter’s first musical,” remembers Grant Denyer.

 

“I tend to cry before the Mrs does a lot of the time but I’m not ashamed of that,” says Shannon Noll.

 

“If a man’s crying and they’re not worried about anyone seeing it, that’s strong,” claims Green.

 

If footy players, boxers, rugby players, musicians and comedians aren’t ashamed of being honest about their emotions, then we can be open too!
