The traditional expectations of stoicism in Latino culture limit many men from expressing their true selves. Add to that, the societal pressure to achieve the American dream pushes about 4 million Latinos in the US into severe depression every year, with many opting to commit suicide instead of seeking help.

Dr. Paul Rivera (PhD), a Co-founder of Be Act Change, joins me today to discuss the unique challenges and empowerment paths for Latino men over 40. We discuss vital topics, including fitness, health, nutrition, mindset, and true masculinity, to help men escape the depression trap as they age.

We also share practical steps for overcoming cultural and intergenerational challenges, the significance of celebrating achievements, and the concept of Post Traumatic Growth.

Whether you're dealing with mental health issues, struggling with family dynamics, or looking to build a supportive community, this episode offers the guidance and inspiration you need.

Join us as we uncover the layers of Latino masculinity and explore how you can live a fulfilling, authentic life. And remember, redefining your masculinity is not a sign of weakness but a testament to your strength and resilience.
