Recession Depression: Men Have It Worse Than Women

According to a new survey conducted by a British nonprofit, traditional gender roles may cause men to suffer recession blues more than women. Men, for example, are told they need to be both solvent and stoic: they're traditionally the bread winners, and if they're blue, they'd better not seek mental health help — it's a sign of weakness. To make matters worse, in general, psychologists say that men feel more shame when they lose a job or a home.

The survey found that 40 percent of British men feel bad about their job security or money situation. In addition, men are less likely than women to talk about their problems with friends or to seek professional help and are thus less likely to be diagnosed and treated for mental health problems. The study suggested that the government introduce more "male friendly" treatment strategies, like prescribing exercise.

All things being equal, do you think men are more susceptible than women to being depressed about their financial situation?
