Depression is characterized by a core set of symptoms including low mood, lack of motivation, loss of pleasure in activities and hobbies, changes in appetite, sleep disturbances, feelings of guilt, and difficulty concentrating.
It's long been thought that men and women experience and express depression in different ways, but that doesn't mean the condition could be divided into two distinct forms.
On their own, biological sex and gender differences may not have a powerful impact. When combined with other factors, such as life stressors, sexism, toxic masculinity, trauma, and co-occurring mental health conditions like anxiety, substance use disorders, or eating disorders, these influences may make a person more prone to depression.
Research has repeatedly indicated that women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with depression.
One possible explanation is that hormonal changes that are specific to the female body could influence the onset of depression.
Studies in support of the theory also indicate that there is a disparity in depression risk between males and females that peaks in adolescence.
Research has indicated that women who are depressed are more likely to show “typical” (or recognizable) emotional symptoms, such as crying.
Men may be more likely to express depression in the following ways:
Studies have consistently shown that the rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide are high in the LGBTQ+ community.
Studies have also shown that kids and teens experiencing gender dysphoria and/or questioning their sexual orientation are more vulnerable to depression.
People in sexual minority groups often lack equitable access to health care, including mental health services. While they may begin in youth, these disparities can persist into adulthood.
