Women and Mental Health

 

Overview

 

Men and women react to mental disorders differently. While certain disorders, such as anxiety and depression, occur more commonly in women than in men, also certain forms of depression only women are subject to. Also effective in determining mental disorder symptoms is the time of hormonal change, such as perinatal depression, premenstrual dystrophic disorder and perimenopause-asociated depression.

 

For other mental disorders, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, there are significant differences in occurrence for women and men. Nevertheless, women may experience these disorders differently from men. For example, characteristic differences in symptoms may be seen in women but not seen in men. Additionally, there may be biological and psychosocial factors that affect women differently from men.
