That being said, it turns out that most of the merit is being open to others about one’s mental health issues, as well as accepting being “vulnerable”.
Of course, none of this was easy, especially the last part.
While chatting with HollywoodLife, he explained, “For a long time I didn’t even know what it actually meant. It was hard for me to be vulnerable. I’ve always had a problem opening up people to things I deal with, be it my family or best friends. The idea of being vulnerable – I didn’t quite understand how to access it. I’ve been working on that a lot lately. ‘

Actor Michael Douglas’s son had a rather tumultuous life, having spent no less than seven years behind bars for drug possession and two more in a house between houses for the same crime.
Of course, addiction is an even bigger struggle, and now it has the strength to open up to the public about it too.
Obviously, however, this has not always been the case.
Even when it came to his family, Cameron would bottle his feelings, but that’s all in the past.
“They say the key to lasting happiness and contentment is to open up only to who you really are. Mental health is part of that. Fear is something I’ve struggled with for a long time. If Movember allows this conversation to take place between men and fathers, the stigma is removed a little. ‘
He made sure the therapy was recognized for all these positive changes in his life too, and mentioned that he really wished he had started the sessions earlier as a teenager and young adult.
