Men and Depression: Tuffy Sierra, Trauma and Recovery Specialist


“Depression for us as Indian men is not diagnosed because of the trauma we’ve suffered.” (:30 TV PSA)

Men are less likely than women to recognize and seek treatment for depression. Because men may appear to be angry or aggressive instead of sad, their families and friends, and even their doctors, may not recognize depression symptoms. The men in this “Real Men. Real Depression.” video series provide valuable insight as they talk about their experiences with depression.
