Did you know six million men are affected by depression every year? While mental illness impacts both men and women, men are less likely to seek treatment due to social norms, reluctance to talk and downplaying symptoms.
Depression in men often goes undiagnosed which can lead to unhealthy coping mechanisms that exacerbate symptoms. In fact, men suffering from depression are four times more likely to commit suicide than women. For men and women, job loss, social isolation and other challenges can have negative impacts on mental health and could cause suicide rates to spike.
This infographic showcases just some of the important statistics related to men's mental health care. If you or someone you care about need help, contact an Oceans Hospital near you.
