Depression signs and symptoms can differ in men and women. Men also tend to use different coping skills — both healthy and unhealthy — than women do. It isn't clear why men and women may experience depression differently. It likely involves a number of factors, including brain chemistry, hormones and life experiences.

Like women with depression, men with depression may:

Feel sad, hopeless or emptyFeel extremely tiredHave difficulty sleepingNot get pleasure from activities they once enjoyedOther behaviors in men that could be signs of depression — but not recognized as such — include:

Free Depression Screening

To help diagnose illness, Barnabas Health Behavioral Health Center will host free depression screenings on Thursday, October 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1691 U.S. Highway 9 in Toms River.

Depression is characterized by depressed or sad mood, lack of pleasure in usual hobbies or interests, irritability, poor concentration, weight gain or loss, low energy and difficulties concentrating. Without an intervention, depression can lead to recurrent thoughts of death where the patient can develop suicidal ideation or a plan to end their life.

Anxiety drives depression, says Dr. Mary Jane Maser, APN the Clinical Director of Stepping Stones, Intensive Outpatient Program at Barnabas Behavioral Health Center.

Anxiety is overthinking negatively about problems in your life that you dont have control over. If you had control over them, its called problem solving. If youre overthinking something negative that you dont have control over- thats anxiety. If overthinking continues and is related to a loss you can become sad and depressed. People can also become depressed if they are overthinking things that they cannot control such as their relationship with a spouse, coworker or a teenager. Once you realize that youve done everything you can and dont have control, never did and never will, can lead many people to feel helpless and hopeless, continues Dr. Maser.
