Video on Male Depression Hidden Signs and Symptoms
Men with depression handle their symptoms in a very different way than females.
Although research has indicated that women experience depression at 1 ½ to 2 times the rate of men, recent research conducted by Jed Diamond, Ph.D, and others, indicates that male depression has been under-reported and is beginning to rise significantly. In his 2009 book, Male vs. Female Depression: Why Men Act Out and Women Act In Diamond reported on a major research study that concluded "Women seek help—men die." The study found that 75% of those who sought professional help at a suicide prevention program were female. Conversely 75% of those who committed suicide in the same year were male. Dr. Diamond was interviewed by HealthyPlace to talk about this topic.
Unfortunately, the interview with Dr. Diamond is no longer available. Here are two videos to help men recognize depression and accept it.
