Compared with women, depressed men are also more likely to suffer serious consequences from their depression. Why is that so?
Men do not deal with their emotions intelligent as well as women do. Or your third brain, your heart. When I ask most women what is the most important words in the world, women say love Where most men won't, although men are learning faster now.
Even in this modern era it may come down to society's expectations of men. A man is "expected" to accomplish more financially, along with being the protector and head of the household while adjusting to an ever changing society and it's expectations.
In the 1950s things were pretty much in black and white with regard to gender roles and expectations. Men worked, women took care of the children and the household. Men were expected to be very hands on with the raising of the children nor be "emotionally available" and make as many compromises as today.
The 1960s ushered in an era of demand for more equal rights for women in the work place, better birth control, better career options, changes in dating customs, and marital expectations.....etc
Essentially with every advancement women have made has required (men) to make adjustments. While laws can be enacted with a vote or a signature the real challenge always comes with changing minds and hearts. It's never instant. Many men are not as assured of themselves as they were in prior generations. They find themselves "second guessing" their actions, thoughts, and words as they learn to (share) power.
Holding on to what has always been can be "comforting" for many men.
Major changes and uncertainty can lead to (stress and depression).
Some people hate change so much they will fight it while others fear it.
Even the slogan: "Make America Great Again" is a wish to "go back".
Future generations will probably have an easier time dealing with the ever evolving gender role changes/expectations, diversity, LGBTQ..etc.
Some men are not emotionally stable especially those young adolescents men. If they were confronted with a certain problem, they, too, can't handle the burden. That is some of the reasons why men also are more likely to suffer depression. But it not experienced by all men, the prevalence of this cases are not yet proven.
