Dr. Jed Diamond (LCSW,PhD)
My passion in life is to support men, and the women who love them, in eliminating the stresses that undermine their health and wreck their relationships.
I know what it's like to feel emotional pain and have dedicated my life to serving others.
My PhD is in International Health and I've been a licensed MCSW for 40 plus years. I'm the Founder and Director of the MenAlive, 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. I've written 10 books and my latest, 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 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. He also did a nationally televised special on Male Menopause for PBS.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I do believe that our passion for our calling often comes from the wounds we experience in our lives. I still remember vividly hearing that my father was hospitalized following a suicide attempt. I was 5 years old. He was 42. At the time I had little idea of what had actually happened, but I knew my father wasn’t home and I was sad and scared. Somewhere deep inside I wondered what happened to him, did it happen to other fathers, and would it someday happen to me?
These questions weren’t far from my mind when I went off to medical school in 1965 following a heated argument with my father ending with him screaming, “You’ll never be a good doctor if you won’t even take care of your own father.” I went into, and dropped out of, U.C. San Francisco Medical school within a two week span and found the path to my calling when I enrolled at U.C. Berkeley’s school of Social Welfare.
When my son, Jemal, was born on November 21, 1969, I made a vow to him that I would be a different kind of father than my father had been able to be for me and I would commit my life to helping make a world that was safer for fathers, their wives, and children.
