Beating Male Depressionmen's sex drive as profoundly as it does women. Yes, we've all heard the jokes about the male mid-life crisis and the questions of self-identity that go with it.
But there's a darker side to depression in men.
Over a million people take their lives world-wide each year. American men are three to four times more likely to commit suicide than women. In fact, American men between 20 and 24 have a suicide rate seven times higher than women in the same age bracket.
While not all depressed men are going to commit suicide, symptoms of depression affect men's lives and can have a profound impact on their careers, sexual health and their loved ones. Symptoms of depression include feelings of hopelessness, guilt or helplessness, low mood, decreased sexual desire (Libido) and an inability to feel pleasure, lack of energy and insomnia.
