Men and Depression Summary

Men and Depression: What to Do When the Man You Care About is Depressed by Theresa Francis-Cheung

Men are much less likely than women to seek help when they're depressed, all to often seeking oblivion through alcohol or workaholism. High rates of suicide make this an issue of vital importance. This guide offers help to men and those close to them. Men are less likely than women to talk about their feelings of despair or seek help from doctors. The stigma of depression is keenly felt, often considered to be shameful and "unmanly" - how can he admit to suffering if he needs to be the "rock" and provider. As a result the crisis can exist, largely unrecognised and unacknowledged by the men who suffer and by those who live or work with them. Written by a health writer who has experienced caring for a partner with depression and a psychologist who offers excellent case histories and advice, the book contains everything the partner, friend or family member needs to know to help the sufferer and help themselves. The text includes sections on: what are the symptoms to look for and risk factors to be aware of?; how you can talk about the subject; male stress and depression in different age groups groups and life stages; and the treatment options - conventional, natural, group, therapy and more.
