Women's Mental Health

Women's Mental HealthMood disorders are twice as prevalent in women compared with men, particularly during the childbearing years. Unfortunately, women are less likely to report and seek help for these problems than they are for general medical problems, though they may be just as disabled by them. Both stigma and lack of knowledge regarding mental health problems are barriers to receiving care. Furthermore, studies show that a mother’s untreated depression is bad for her children as well as for herself.
