Overview

Many men—those experiencing unemployment for the first time in their lives and returning war veterans among others—feel shame in facing up to their depression and choose to downplay or avoid any mention of their condition. Often it's left up to the women in their lives to find a way to assist them. Board certified psychiatrist Douglas Bey, Jr., with more than 40 years experience in this field, provides the insight and guidance women need to identify this condition in their men and help them obtain critical professional assistance. With compassion and humor, Bey sheds light on the causes of depression unique to men as well as its impact on them and provides a gameplan for their treatment. His straight-forward advice offers caregiving wives and girlfriends the tools to recognize the symptoms of depression, to support their men through recovery, and perhaps most importantly to maintain their own morale in the interim.

    Very Helpful!!

    As the wife of a depressed spouse - I found this book to be both informative and comforting. I was surprised how common depression is in middle-aged men and was comforted to know that I am not alone. After reading the book I feel much more able to support and help my husband through this stage in his life. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a partner or spouse that shows any signs of depression.

    Very Interesting and Helpful

    I have read several of Dr. Bey's other books and have found them all to be very interesting. Although this newest book is aimed toward women helping the depressed man in their life, it is also very helpful and informative for anyone with a depressed spouse, family member or close friend. I learned more than I ever thought possible in this very informative and easy read. Dr. Bey has a true gift of making a potentilly complicated situation very easy to understand and act upon. This book should be a very valuable resource to many people - I highly recommend it.
