About Jed Diamond

I am the Founder and Director of MenAlive, a health program that helps men, and the people who love them, to live well throughout their lives.  I am a licensed psychotherapist with a Ph.D. in International Health and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My passion is to help men and women have the most life-enhancing and joyful relationships possible. I believe creative couples are the hope for the future of humankind. 

For more than 40 years, I have been a pioneer in the field of male-gender medicine, integrative mental health, and community wellness. Since its inception in 1992, I have been on the Board of Advisors of the Men’s Health Network.  I am also a member of the International Society of Men’s Health and a founding member of the American Society of Men’s Health.  I blog for the ThirdAge, Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Your Tango, Scribd, Menstuff, and other venues. I am the only male columnist who blogs 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. He has 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, and Fox News, and To Tell the Truth.  I've also done a nationally televised special on Male Menopause for PBS-TV.

I am the author of fourteen books including the international best-selling Male Menopause that has thus far been translated into 17 foreign languages.

My most recent book, The Enlightened Marriage: The 5 Transformative Stages of Relationships and Why The Best Is Still to Come will be published in 2016.

Stress Relief for Men:  How to Use the Revolutionary Tools of Energy Healing to Live Well, published by North Atlantic Books and distributed by Random House, has been gaining popularity.

My first book for children (and adults who believe in saving the planet), Composting Abbie: A Whale of a Story, was published in February, 2014.  

My PhD dissertation, Gender and Depression, broke new ground in creating a better evaluation system for diagnosing and treating depression in men and women.
