Most of the times, especially in our Indian Society, we want men to be strong and act as a pillar to our family. We forget that they can also feel weak, vulnerable, and be depressed. It’s high time that we acknowledge and help Men who are in Depression. 

The most important thing to consider is that symptoms of depression in men and women can vary as their characteristics and nature are different. Men tend to have a higher tendency to feel anger and are comparatively more aggressive in depression. Let’s look at some plausible causes which can lead to depression in men:

Causes of Depression in Men:

A fusion of variant emotions causes depression. From a rude comment to a physical illness, anything can trigger depression in men. We have brought you some common possible causes which lead to this. 

  1. Financial expectations:

Financial strain in Indian families can lead to depression in men. More often than not, because of conservative families, men still go through a lot of trauma and pressure. It can trigger stress levels and, in extremes, can lead to depression. 

  1. Broken Relationships:

 A loss of a loved one or a complicated relationship is another common cause of depression in men and women. Regular fights, arguments, sexual problems, or significant life changes can cause a broken relationship and open gates to self-doubt, mental stress, Insomnia, feeling worthlessness, etc. 

  1. Genetic Factors:

Did you know that Genetic factors can also lead to depression in men? A man with a history of depression in the family is more likely to be depressed than a regular man. 

Consulting a psychiatrist rather than friendly advice would be the right way to go. 

  1. Illness:

Any physical condition or severe medical illness like diabetes, cancer, heart diseases, etc., can be one of the potential contributing factors to depression. In any disease, a patient is required to take heavy medication, which has its own side effects, which can lead to mood swings, mental stress, irritation, and, more often than not, depression.

  1. Miscellaneous factors:

Other potential factors could be significant life changes, work problems, any stressful situation, other mental health problems like bipolar disorder, inability to speak in public, etc. 

These were some potential causes of depression in men. If you spot accelerated aggressiveness, irritation, energy loss every day, Insomnia, then don’t take it lightly. Consult a psychiatrist or mental health professional today. Take care!
