Ahad found new direction in life when he approached a support group. Weighed down by his struggles and without an outlet to share his accomplishments, Ahad needed to find a safe place to share his inner thoughts. What he found was a community that had gone through many of the same challenges and mistakes as him and was equipped to help him through those. Ahad shares in this episode of the One Away Show.
In this episode, Ahad and Bryan discuss:
- Enabling others to find emotional support
- The societal implications of men lacking emotional tools
