"There is no better book for someone who loves a depressed man and wants to understand what he needs." - Jacqueline Olds, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard University
Many men—those experiencing unemployment for the first time in their lives and returning war veterans among others—feel shame in facing up to their depression and choose to downplay or avoid any mention of their condition. Often it's left up to the women in their lives to find a way to assist them. Board certified psychiatrist Douglas Bey, Jr., with more than 40 years experience in this field, provides the insight and guidance women need to identify this condition in their men and help them obtain critical professional assistance in his new book, Loving a Depressed Man: Understand the Symptoms, Find the Help He Needs, and Maintain Your Morale. With compassion and humor, Dr. Bey sheds light on the causes of depression unique to men and provides a game plan for their treatment. His straight-forward advice offers caregiving wives and girlfriends the tools to recognize the symptoms of depression, to support their men through recovery, and perhaps most importantly to maintain their own morale in the interim.
Douglas Bey, Jr. is a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine and the Menninger School of Psychiatry. He served as the United States Army 1st Infantry Psychiatrist in Vietnam and he is the author of the previously published books Loving the Adult Child of an Alcoholic and Wizard 6: a Combat Psychiatrist in Vietnam.
