Description

The disease of depression is rarely talked about by society, much less by men. This pamphlet explores the illness of depression, how it uniquely affects men in general, and how you can recognize the symptoms in those you know, those you love, and in those who may be asking for help and don't know it. You'll find statistics in this pamphlet--like depressed men commit suicide four times more often than depressed women--and you'll learn about the myths surrounding depression and how dangerous they are to everyone.

For many men, depression is an illness that is overlooked, ignored, or simply tolerated. Depression reaches people of all ages and cultures, but it can be especially dangerous for men.

This pamphlet discusses the illness of depression and its effects on men, including -Myths about depression -Reasons men do not seek treatment -Symptoms of depression -Where to go for help William Rabior, ACSW, is a seasoned therapist who has experienced his own journey through depression.
