The Personal Nature of Agriculture: Men and Depression

Publication #: B-1104
Date Published:

Publication Author(s):
Randy R. Weigel

Description:
Although depression is most often associated with women, the disease also appears to take a greater toll on men. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates three to four million men in the United States suffer from clinical depression at any given time. More women attempt suicide, but more men actually succeed and commit suicide at four times the rate women do. The Personal Nature of Agriculture: Men and Depression is a Web-only bulletin that explains how to recognize depression, why the disease affects men differently than women, and how to live with a depressed man. The author discusses treatment plans for depressed patients and lists sources of support for depressed men. Weigel explains, "If men can realize that they have strengths, weaknesses, fears, and doubts and accept these as being human, then they will be less prone to depression.
