Men experience depression differently. The disorder is harder to recognize, less often diagnosed, and less often treated.
Men’s depression and suicide
The depression-related suicide rate in men is three times higher than in women, yet a precise diagnosis of depression in men is often not made. Because for many, the classic symptoms of depression are incompatible with the typical image of masculinity – their own feelings are communicated much less openly compared to women, and they are less likely to seek medical or therapeutic help. Their illness behavior and coping attempts result in a sudden change in personality traits, and uncharacteristic behavior patterns and symptoms may emerge in the form of aggressiveness or increased alcoholism.
To avoid misdiagnosis and increase the early detection rate of depression in men, both diagnosis and therapy must be adapted specifically for men. At LIMES Castle Clinics, you will receive individual treatment and therapy.
