What Should Men Do When They are Depressed?

It is hard to find a man that talks about his feeling, and it is very rare to see a man talks about his depression. In most cases, they express depression through aggression or any other most appropriate behavior for a man. But deeply, they are full of sadness and fear.

We need to have more understanding for people who are going through this, no matter if they are admitting it or hiding it. Some national statistics claim that in many countries of the modern world, there are more and more problems with suicides.

What should men do when they are depressed? Firstly, they have to admit to themselves that they have a problem. Secondly, they should speak with the closest friends or a family about their problems. More about this you can read in the article below which has been published by The Telegraph.

Men need to open up about depression, not man up and keep quiet

Suicide is now the leading cause of death in men under 50, but most men still won’t admit when they have mental health problems, says Matt Haig.

Let’s start with a cold hard statistic.
Suicide is now the leading cause of death in men under the age of 50. Think about that for a while. It is not cancer or heart disease or a car accident that is most likely to kill young, or even middle-aged men, but suicide.
The Office for National Statistics also tell us that whereas in 1981, 63 per cent of suicides were male, now that figure is 78 per cent.
As last night’s Panorama showed, there is something about being a man in 2015 that makes you far more likely to take your own life. This gets more startling when you bear in mind that far more women are diagnosed with depression. Read the full article here.

As we said, most suicides happen in the modern countries with the lowest unemployment rates and with a good social politics which guarantees good living conditions for its citizens. Jonathan Wells from The Telegraph wrote an interesting story about the man who became depressed after he earned millions.

Can money and success make you depressed?

A multi-billionaire video game creator has announced that he feels isolated and depressed on Twitter. Is there such a thing as being too rich and successful?

On Saturday evening, Markus Persson – the creator of sandbox video game Minecraft – overshared on Twitter.

In a series of rambling and unabashed tweets, the multi-billionaire revealed that selling his independent gaming company Mojang to Microsoft has left him feeling empty inside.

Many will undoubtedly scoff at Persson’s sentiments; they will find it difficult to feel sympathy for a man who cashed a $2.5 billion cheque not 12 months ago. Read the full article here.


If you convinced that you will be happy when you earn a lot of money, that is not true. Maybe, you will be happy for a short period of time. In order to be a happy man in general, you need to find a beauty in your everyday activities. You have to learn to appreciate little things that happen every day and you will be a happy man. Also, you need to know that depression can be the result of some disbalances of oxytocin levels in your body. If this is the case with you, you should use oxytocin improve hormone treatment therapy.
