Your mental health is inseparable from your physical health. Not a revolutionary concept, but what is astounding is the stigmatization that still surrounds men who dare to talk about their mental struggles. As we move into Mental Health Awareness Month this May, we hope to change that. Men who are vocal about any kind of mental issues can be dismissed as weak. As inferior. As flawed, broken guys who are more likely to be ostracized for their honesty, instead of rewarded for their bravery.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Drug recovery experts in North Carolina say they're seeing children fall victim to the nation's drug epidemic, claiming lives at an early age. Research shows that the majority of adults with a substance use disorder started using before age 18. Even if those teens seek treatment, many times they return to same schools and friend groups, which can lead to relapses. Because of the rise, there is a new push to establish so-called "recovery high schools" programs that allow teens to overcome addiction issues while continuing their education.

No matter how old you are, what your musical taste is or whether or not you can read a note, there's never a wrong time to learn how to play an instrument.
