New Yorker works to remove stigma on men’s mental health struggles

Covid-19 has tested everyone in different ways and many of us were forced to take a deeper look into our emotional state to address struggles like anxiety and depression.

John Timm, a New York resident who struggled with his mental health during the pandemic, took a step to spread awareness and help others. 

“It can be a lonely journey,” Timm said and therefore he used his skills as a craftsman to build symbolic chairs to help spread his message that “no man sits alone.”

"This is my way of opening up about my experience in hopes that other men see the strength in it and seek the help they need to live a better life," Timm said.
