Hi thoogun. I read it somewhere that men are more predisposed to depression the reason that they don't share their feelings. The symptoms are more visible in women because they cry etc. and they show their feelings more.
I also read that depression is genetic? The coping mechanism is one area to consider between men and women.
thooghun, there are no differences between male and female depression. Depression is just that, depression.
What may be different is the depression trigger for males and females and their reaction to, and expression of, depression.
The biggest problem, and difference, with male depression is that men don't want to admit they are depressed and therefore, seek help. Many men feel that being depressed or seeking help for depression is a sign of weakness.
Below is a good website to check out on the subject
