Helping Men and Their Mental Health
Six million men suffer from depression every year,
downplaying symptoms, and a reluctance to talk about their feelings. Men are less likely to show the “typical” signs of depression such as sadness.
Depression in men may cause them to keep their feelings hidden. Instead of expressing a depressed mood, they may seem more irritable and aggressive.
Are you experiencing these feelings or do you know someone who is? Here are some great resources providing help and hope.
