Until recently, the risk of depressive disorders among women (20–25%) was considered to be about twice as high as in men (7–12%). Among women, the rates increase with age, starting from 2.5% in the youngest group (18–29 years), up to 5% in women over 50 years of age. The prevalence of depression among men remains at a similar level in all age groups, with a slight increase in indicators in the group between 30 and 39 years of age. It is increasingly assumed that in the case of the male sex, the incidence rates of depressive disorders are significantly underestimated. Men are more likely to undertake effective suicide attempts. The reasons for this phenomenon will be presented in this work.
