Video: Male Depression

depression-among-men

Male Depression has been a big topic in the news since Robin Williams death last week.  As we all know by now, Robin Williams was suffering from depression when he took his own life.  Male depression is not a topic that is widely discussed.  Is it because of the stigma of being “weak” if you are depressed?  As a society we still discriminate and think of men having to be the “stronger” of the sexes, not only physically but emotionally.

FamilyAffaires.com Expert Contributor Dr. Dan Gottlieb speaks to us today, not only as a Psychologist, but also as a man who has experienced depression at different times of his life.  He will explain the different signs in male depression and what kind of help is available. It’s so important to discuss these issues so more and more people can be helped and hopefully we can save at least one person from feeling so desperate that they want to end their lives.
