They say boys don’t cry, but studies show they are often depressed…

Every year, about six million American men are diagnosed with depression. Yet these numbers may not tell the whole story. Because men may be reluctant to discuss depression with a health care professional, many go undiagnosed and consequently untreated.
 
In support of Men’s Health Month in June, please encourage the men in your life to take a free, online self-assessment for depression. The Department of Defense is offering anonymous mental health and alcohol self-assessments for service members and their families to help them identify their own symptoms and access assistance before a problem becomes serious. The self-assessments are available year-round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, either online at www.MilitaryMentalHealth.org or by phone at 877-877-3647.
