Men: Recognize symptoms of depression
How men feel depression
Both men and women get depressed. But men may be more likely than women to:
- Feel very tired and irritable.
- Lose interest in their work, family or hobbies.
- Have difficulty sleeping.
Depression is a real and treatable illness. Yet men are often reluctant to talk about how they're feeling or to seek help. Don't ignore your feelings.
