Men may claim that it’s just burnout or stress

As a woman, I feel comfortable telling people that I live with bipolar disorder and I often experience clinical depression.

However, I’ve heard from my male friends that they don’t have the same experience about opening up about being a man and having Depression. In my mind, this is a societal misperception and indicative of sexism. I believe that everyone with mental health issues has the right to feel their feelings in a candid way and speak about them openly. I was inspired to find out more about how men experience Depression.
