Abstract From a psychiatric consultation of women, the authors have tried to bring up the psychosocial aspects being very much influenced by the cultural context. They have discovered two profiles of these sort of women, they are either, married women under the stress of uncontrolled child-birth and are very much influenced by local tradition or are women being at a turning points of their life; adolescence, premenopause, and menopause. The authors have a well demonstrated the primordial role they take as natural (helpers) aids when a member of the family gives evidence of mental disorder.
