Although he felt too afraid to speak out for many years, comedian Wayne Brady is opening up once more about his longtime struggle with depression.

After revealing to Entertainment Tonight in November that he suffered a "breakdown" on his 42nd birthday last June, Brady points to the difficulty men have with opening up about mood disorders in a patriarchal culture that demands they hide their feelings.

"We feel any of the negative emotions or that dark cloud settle on you, and you feel like you need to cry out or speak to someone about it, and, 'Nope, I'm not gonna do that, because I'm a man.' "
