Men and depression

An article in the Guardian by Ally Fogg argues that the 'boys don't cry' culture is largely to blame for the suicides of under-35-year-old males.  They need to be more open about their emotions, and more prepared to ask for help.  The Dean Windlass story, and Gary Speed's death were the immediate triggers for the article.
As ever comments beneath are enough in places to drive me to despair - in others they are brilliant.  
My own take?  Definitely an issue for anyone concerned with gender equality.
