Men & Depression Basics 


Did you know that your depression can go undiagnosed for years? 

 

  • Depression can be subtle in many adult men and adolescent boys, and that is one reason why it can go unnoticed or undiagnosed for months or years. 

  • Depression is an illness that can affect thoughts, mood, and physical health. It is often characterized by overwhelming feelings of emptiness, hollowness, loss of motivation, confusion, loss, and worthlessness. With depression, these feelings are severe enough that they interfere with men's work and relationships. 

  • Depression in men can be a long-term condition involving several symptoms that can negatively affect a man's work, relationships, and the quality of life of men that suffer from it. About 17% of the U.S. population experiences depression at some time in their lives. 

  • Depression is more common in women but more readily recognized than when men are depressed; therefore, few men get help or treatment before it becomes severe.  

  • Depression can happen to anyone, regardless of race, income, or education. 

  • Chronic depression is classified as a medical condition. In the past, ignorance and fear contributed to a social stigma regarding mental health. It is becoming more widely known that male depression in common in boys and men, even seemingly successful men can struggle with some levels of depression. 

  • Many men misunderstand depression and consider it to be a sign of weakness or being inadequate. It is not a sign of weakness or lack of character. A man cannot just snap out of being depressed.

  • Men often believe that depression is just feeling blue. These misinformed attitudes can harm depressed men by causing them to avoid seeking treatment. Without treatment, depression can last for months, or even years. 

  • Depression is a condition in men that causes more disability than diabetes, coronary artery disease, or arthritis. The World Health Organization estimates that depression will be the second-leading cause of disability by the year 2020.
