Overview

Men who have experienced bouts of despair speak of it as a kind of living death, a deep darkness of the soul, where the self wages a struggle against loss, hopelessness and futility. Yet as intensely personal as the experience may seem, its effects spread beyond the individual into the circle of family, friends and work relationships. This book offers help and understanding to both the men suffering such a crisis and those people in their lives who may feel very much alone and helpless, often coping with their own feelings of guilt, anger and despair. Men are often poorly equipped to handle the emotional and physical crisis of mood disorders and are far less likely than women to talk about their problems or consult doctors with ease and openness. They may feel more keenly the stigma of depression, discouraged by their feelings of shame and guilt from admitting anything is wrong. Theresa Francis-Cheung and Robin Grey discuss those painful issues men and those close to them may be facing with warmth and understanding, offering sympathetic advice to help them find a positive way forward.
