Newsweek on Men and Depression

NEWSWEEK has done an amazing job in covering the topic of  men and depression. Most of these articles/videos/etc. were published two years ago, but they are well worth checking out.

Men & Depression: Facing Darkness
“Six million American men will be diagnosed with depression this year. But millions more suffer silently, unaware that their problem has a name or unwilling to seek treatment…Although depression is emotionally crippling and has numerous medical implications—some of them deadly—many men fail to recognize the symptoms.

And even when they do realize they have a problem, men often view asking for help as an admission of weakness, a betrayal of their male identities.”
