Black Men And Depression by John Head


Original Title: Black Men And Depression

In mainstream society depression and mental illness are still somewhat taboo subjects; in the black community they are topics that are almost completely shrouded in secrecy. As a result, millions of black men are suffering in silence or getting treatment only in extreme circumstances–in emergency rooms, homeless shelters, and prisons. The neglect of emotional disorders among men in the black community is nothing less than racial suicide. In this groundbreaking book, veteran journalist and award-winning author John Head argues that the problem can be traced back to the time of slavery, when it was believed that blacks were unable to feel inner pain because they had no psyche. This myth has damaged generations of African American men and their families, creating a society that blames black men for being violent and aggressive without considering that depression might be a root cause. Black Men and Depression challenges the African American community and the psychiatric community to end the suffering of black men, and address what can be done by loved ones to help those who need it most.

Does Your Man Have The Blues by David Hawkins


Original Title: Does Your Man Have The Blues

Depression in men--even Christian men--has reached epidemic proportions. Though clouded by secrecy and denial, depression can powerfully shape a man's personality. He may talk and act in ways that baffle the woman in his life and leave her feeling unable to connect with him and powerless to help. But help is available. Licensed clinical psychologist Dr. David Hawkins brings this problem out into the open with unusual compassion and clarity. He describes the telltale signs of male depression, pinpoints some of the causes, and offers suggestions to those who would help. Married women will readily connect with this frank discussion as they recognize familiar scenarios and learn how to determine if their man has the blues.

Unmasking Male Depression by Archibald Hart


Original Title: Unmasking Male Depression

Depression is a secret pain at the core of many men's lives, and one that goes largely undiagnosed and untreated. The consequences of not treating male depression are extremely serious. Studies show that suicide is more common in men than women, and tha the male suicide rate is three times higher at midlife than at any other life stage. In Unmasking Male Depression, Dr. Archibald Hart explores the many forms of depression and gives tools for coping with and healing depression in men. Hart also examines the lives of Christian leaders who struggled with depression, such as Charles Spurgeon, Martin Luther, and John Calvin, to reveal the myths surrounding this illness
