According to a CDC survey, close to one in 10 American men suffers from depression or anxiety, but fewer than half get treatment (Source: “Many U.S. Men With Depression, Anxiety Don't Get Treated, CDC Finds,” HealthDay News, June 11, 2015).
The nationwide poll of more than 21,000 men also found that among younger males, blacks and Hispanics are less likely than whites to report mental health symptoms. And when they do acknowledge psychiatric troubles, they are less likely to seek professional help than whites, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report.
The survey was conducted between 2010 and 2013. The results were published June 11 in the NCHS Data Brief.
