My name is Jed Diamond and welcome to MenAlive.com!
I have a masters degree is social work and a PhD in International Health. I founded MenAlive to be a health program that helps men live long and well. Though focused on men’s health, MenAlive is also for women who care about the health of the men in their lives. My passion in life is to support men, and the women who love them, in eliminating the stresses that undermine their health and wreck relationships. My latest book, MenAlive: Stop Killer Stress with Simple Energy Healing Tools, brings together the wisdom accumulated in 40 years helping more than 20,000 men, women, and children.
My mission with MenAlive seeks to help men, and the women who love them, successfully navigate the unique stresses of life in the 21st century, so that all our relationships can survive and prosper.
The economic and ecological changes going on in the world are unprecedented in human history. Everyone is impacted, but particularly men, and more specifically men over 40.
My vision for MenAlive is to focus on Male Stress, Male-type depression, Male Menopause, and Irritable Male Syndrome, as critical aspects of men’s health and well-being. MenAlive is a safe haven in this time of transition. It offers time-tested resources to help you when you need it the most. It’s a place you can trust for yourself and your loved ones, a place we can all come together to share our experiences to help us weather the storm. None of us have all the answers, but together we can find our way.
Since its inception in 1992, I’ve been on the Board of Advisors of the Men’s Health Network. I’m also a member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP), the International Society for the Study of the Aging Male and serves as a member of the International Scientific Board of the World Congress on Gender and Men’s Health. I blog regularly for the Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Good Therapy, Your Tango and I’m the only male columnist writing for the National Association of Baby Boomer Women.
My work has been featured in major newspapers throughout the United States including the New York Times, Boston Globe, Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, and USA Today. I’ve been featured on more than 1,000 radio and T.V. programs including The View with Barbara Walters, Good Morning America, Today Show, CNN-360 with Anderson Cooper, CNN with Glenn Beck, CBS, NBC, Fox News, and To Tell the Truth. I’ve also done a nationally televised special on Male Menopause for PBS.
I’m the author of ten books including the international best-selling Male Menopause and Surviving Male Menopause that have thus far been translated into 22 foreign languages. The Irritable Male Syndrome: Understanding and Managing the 4 Key Causes of Depression and Aggression and Mr. Mean: Saving Your Relationship from the Irritable Male Syndrome are also developing a world-wide readership.
