Depression in men

I've read somewhere that  Men who are depressed may suddenly become irritable and quick to anger. Non-aggressive men may become more aggressive and hostile. Aggressive men may become more aggressive. From an outsider's perspective, at least for those who do not have any background on psychology, it's easy to judge that man here in the video and easy to sympathize on the woman. But from a peacemaker's perspective, I think the man was triggered by this woman who refused to budge. The man only wanted for his wife to have a seat and the woman won't budge so that triggered it. I pity this man, for the possible depression which is not diagnosed. I pity his wife who for sure suffer the consequences, all the bouts and the mood swings. If they have children I pity all the more the children. Mental health is something that always takes the back seat in our societal concerns. But it is the main reason why a society is crumbling. People with depression, mental health, those needing counselling go about their lives day by day without really knowing they need healing. And so they take it all out on people around them.
