Are you a male that has been told by a doctor or other professional that you might be depressed in the last three weeks?
We're interviewing men to get a better understanding of what you think depression is and what it's like to talk to a doctor about it. Understanding your perspective will be extremely valuable for filling a gap in research on men's experiences of depression.
As compensation for your time and effort in participating in two short interviews, you'll be given $20. The study is recruiting men aged 18 or older who would be willing to spend 30-40 minutes talking with a researcher about these topics.
We ask that you contact us as soon as possible--no longer than three weeks after you were first told by a doctor or other professional that you might be depressed.
The interview will be conducted by phone or in-person for residents of Central Massachusetts or the Greater Boston Area. We will also call you six months after we interview you to check in and do another brief 10-20 minute interview.
You'll be asked a series of questions, and you may decline any question that you do not want to answer. If you wish to stop participating in the study at any time, you are free to do so. Your answers will be kept fully confidential.
