This is the second of two conferences focusing on sex/gender as a differentiator in identification, diagnosis, treatment and referral of patients with psychiatric disorders. Men traditionally are less apt to seek mental health treatment for a variety of reasons, and are often more comfortable getting their mental health needs met in the primary care setting. We have assembled a courageous group of professionally successful men to discuss obstacles to, and facilitators of their mental health treatment. Not all males who “hear voices” have a psychotic, or even a psychiatric disorder.


Utilizing case scenarios, attendees will become more adept at building an appropriate differential diagnosis of “voices” across the lifespan. The effects of testosterone on the male across the lifespan will be thoroughly explored. There are few areas of medicine in which it is more challenging to be involved than the bio-psychosocial diagnosis and treatment of pain. Finally, the largest mental health centers in the 21st century are currently the prison systems (Los Angeles County). We will receive an insider’s view to treatment of mood disorders in male prisoners.
