Summary #1108

  • A professor from University of Kansas published a series of studies with one aim—to uncover why men seek help for depression so rarely.
  • His analyses show that, when it comes to depression, gender differences are real, and gender-specific studies might be necessary to fully understand depression.
  • The main conclusion is that men’s experiences with depression are much different than women’s, and these differences contribute to stigma.
  • To oversimplify this a bit, that stigma, along with other factors, leads to men not wanting to go therapy.
