Hello Harold,
Many people, male and female, wrongly consider mental health problems as a matter of weakness and of course this is not so. In the same way, having diabetes, or high blood pressure is not a result of weakness ; causation is inevitably complex.   Sometimes, ignoring or denying, one's health problems can be a source of weakness : you cannot cope with problems you don't admit to yourself, are real and present.
Some people, who deny the reality of other people's health problems, and fail to respect the suffering of other, are foolish and cruel.
