Depression in Men

Although men are less likely to suffer from depression than women, three-to-four million men in the U.S. are affected by some form of depression. Unfortunately, men are frequently less likely to admit to having symptoms of depression, and doctors are less likely to suspect it in the male population.

Men's depression is often masked by alcohol or drugs, or by the socially acceptable habit of working excessively long hours. Depression in men is frequently missed or undiagnosed because men do not always manifest the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that are frequently associated with depression. Instead, they tend to display feelings of irritability, anger, and discouragement. As a result, depression in the male population may be more difficult to recognize and may result in men being less likely to seek help. Encouragement and support from concerned family members and friends can help men to accept depression as a real illness and help them to seek treatment.
