Depression stigma from a masculine perspective : - does the degree of depression and masculinity matter? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Kvinnor är överrepresenterade gällande depression, medan män är överrepresenterade inom andra problemområden såsom antisociala riskbeteenden, missbruk och suicid. Stigma skapat av maskulina ideal och könsnormer har förts fram som möjlig faktor till könsskillnaderna. Det övergripande syftet med studien var att undersöka sambanden mellan depressiva symtom, depressionsstigma samt maskulinitet. Detta gjordes via en Internetenkät där 396 deltagare (245 kvinnor och 151 män) besvarade frågor som mätte dessa variabler. Studien fann inga könsskillnader gällande depression. Män uppvisade positiva samband mellan maskulinitet, personlig stigma och allmän stigma. Maskulinitetsmåttet förklarade 46 % av variansen i personlig stigma med fyra signifikanta delskalor. Självtillit uppvisade positiva samband med allmän stigma och depression samt negativt samband med personlig stigma. Resultaten tyder på vikten av att vidareutforska relationen mellan depressionsstigma, maskulinitet och depression för en mer fullständig förståelse av män och depression.

Abstract [en]

Women are statistically overrepresented regarding depression while men are overrepresented in other areas such as antisocial risk behaviors, addiction and suicide. Stigma created by masculine ideals and gender norms has been presented as a possible factor for gender differences. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the correlations between depressive symptoms, depression stigma and masculinity. This was done through a internet-survey where 396 Swedish participants (245 women and 151 men) answered questions measuring these variables. The study found no gender differences regarding depression. Men showed positive correlations between masculinity, personal stigma and public stigma. The masculinity measure explained 46% of the variance in personal stigma with four significant subscales. Self-reliance showed positive correlations with public stigma and depression and negative correlation with personal stigma. Results indicate the importance of further studies of the relationship between depression stigma, masculinity and depression for a more complete understanding of men and depression in Sweden.
