“Because older men tend not to endorse depressed mood or sadness, they were often felt to be more reluctant to accept the diagnosis of depression and the treatment recommendations,” stated the UC Davis study.

One of the IMPACT clinicians said that in her view, “’giving up’ these core masculine views … was an important step in the treatment process.” Another physician reported that some older men “just do not think that tough guys go talk to psychologists or psychiatrists, and fool around with that type of monkey business.”

The association of depression with severe mental illness, or “craziness,” was another barrier to care, although it was cited less frequently than the other obstacles.

The manager said, “They will not say, ‘I feel sad’ or ‘I feel depressed.’ They’ll say, ‘I have a stomach ache.’” A primary care physician described a depressed and psychotic older man who was expressing suicidal thoughts, but nevertheless was unwilling to see a psychiatrist because he feared it would “mark him as crazy.”
