Christmas Presents Itself

Christmas is coming. There's nothing you can do about it and, with our stereotypical meter hitting 11, men (and some women) everywhere will be frantically looking for a last-minute present for their nearest and dearest. Have no fear, Men Tell Health are here to give you some mental health based-themed presents you can get ready for the big day.

The link, however tenuous, works whether you're on the Naughty or the Nice list. So, in no particular order, we give you inspiration to pass on to Father Christmas.

Semi-Colon T-Shirt

If you're looking for something for the lady in your life, then how about this? The semi-colon has been adapted by many people to summarise their struggle with mental illness. The semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. In this case, the author is you and the sentence is your life.” Some people get a tattoo, but you can take this t-shirt off!

Available from CafePress - £20
