Women and Mental Health

\r\n Depression, anxiety, psychological distress, sexual violence, domestic violence and escalating rates of substance use affect women than men across different countries and different settings. Pressures created by their multiple roles, gender discrimination and associated factors of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, overwork, domestic violence, and sexual abuse, combine to account for women's poor mental health. When women dare to disclose their problems, many health workers tend to have gender biases which lead them to either over-treat or under-treat women.
