    Men behave differently, but not because depression comes in male or female. Men often react differently because of their perceptions, pattern behaviors and learned biases. VMen often have deeper control issues and masculinity issues which were imposed on them from our religions and culture. To propagate yet another "men and women are different" just complicates the issue and the honesty needed to understand and process it.

    "When moms and dads get depressed, they express it differently: Moms internalize it and may become more withdrawn or seem indifferent or hostile to their children. Depressed dads are more likely to get angry and yell or punch a wall."

    Right after I read that, I stopped reading this article.
