Counseling at Northwestern University (@CounselingatNU) are hosting a live conversation on Twitter to discuss the ways that stigmas prevent individuals from seeking help and get expert recommendations on how you as an individual can help to break them.

Males with eating disorders face additional stigma because these  are widely perceived as "female" conditions that men ought not to suffer from.

Get involved in the Tweetchat and join us and a community of advocates to discuss the following:

*What types of mental illness stigmas and common misconceptions exist?
*Why do stigmas prevent individuals from seeking help?
*Who are the leaders in the field who are raising awareness about mental illness?
*What recommendations do experts have for individuals who want to make a difference in their community?

Share how YOU are breaking the stigmas around mental health! Remember to use the hashtag  #BreakTheStigma

Brian Cuban has authored an article entitled "One man's long battle with eating disorders"

He writes, "I suffered from anorexia and then bulimia for almost 30 years. These are disorders born of fat-shaming at home as a child, and bullying at school by both adults and other kids. I became a heavy child. My thought process would soon allow me to see only a fat, ugly “monster” every time I looked in the mirror, no matter how skinny I would get through extreme eating behaviors. These are the beginnings of Body Dysmorphic Disorder."

Male athletes may be particularly susceptible to developing eating disorders.

Cory Collins has authored an article for SportingNews.com detailing the plight of Zachary Stepanovich, a collegiate runner who suffered from both anorexia and bulimia over a span of several years.

Cory writes, "Stepanovich started getting dizzy on his runs. Specks entered his vision. His pace slowed. The sport that had always rewarded his lightness and leanness had abandoned him. Ultimately, he faced his Waterloo in the battle against his body. Last summer, after Stepanovich ingested almost an entire package of laxatives, the young man they could not keep off the roads, or the scales, found himself in a hospital bed. Zachary had become a shell of himself in sculpting the shell of his self."

"Looking at the bigger picture in the U.S., eating disorders are commonly portrayed as a female-only issue. But while 20 million women suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives, so do 10 million men — and 40% of these men identify as gay or bisexual."

An article entitled "The Idea Of The 'Perfect Body' Hurts Men, Too" has appeared on The Huffington Post.

""I'm tired of hearing people analyse -- criticize -- appraise -- and hate on my body."

That's what men participating in a new BuzzFeed video, "Things Men Are Tired Of Hearing About Their Bodies," are saying. In the video, men repeat body criticisms they've heard, ranging from "real men have facial hair" to "you're too skinny to be a man."

"If we all looked the same, I think that would be really boring," one participant concludes."
