More than 1 man in 20 will become depressed this year. That’s six million men in the United States alone. Too many of these men suffer alone in silence. Some men don’t even know that they’re depressed. That’s because men’s depression doesn’t always look like depression. It can look more like irritability or anger, or working constantly, or drinking too much. A man may also just not feel like himself.
Whatever the symptoms, it’s critical that a man gets help. Depression is life threatening – especially in men. Every hour of every day, three men take their own lives. And men with depression are twice as likely to die from any cause of death. The good news is that depression is treatable and men can fully recover from it.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with “Dr. Will” as a guest expert on my medical television program. He is a compassionate, poised and effective communicator, and I truly enjoy working with him. Dr. Will is an excellent resource and I’ve referred my cardiac patients to him because he is a sensitive listener and I trust he can help these men cope with their anxiety and depression. I highly recommend him when it comes to dealing with men’s health and psychosocial concerns. – Karen Owoc, The Health Reporter and Clinical Exercise Physiologist/Kinesiologist
“Talk therapy” – or psychotherapy or counseling – is a proven effective way to reduce depression, and to feel better about yourself and your life.
