Depression: You don’t have to tough it out

Depression and anxiety can happen to anybody, but men are less likely to reach out for help.

Experiencing depression is not weakness, and “hardening up” won't help – in fact being “tough” can make things worse for yourself and your whānau.

Symptoms of depression can be different for men, and often you will notice physical changes such as feeling tired of having unexplained headaches.

Healthinfo has a collection of resources you can use if you or a loved one needs help.
