Women's Issues

Mental disorders affect women and men almost equally. However, certain disorders, such as major depression and dysthymia (a less severe but often more chronic form of depression), affect women much more than men. For example, an estimated 12% of U.S. women, in contrast to 6.6% of men, will experience a depressive disorder during a one-year period. Additionally, anxiety disorders affect approximately 2-3 times as many women as men. The eating disorders anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa also occur more frequently in women; together they affect up to 2% of adolescent girls and young women, and the prevalence of both is increasing. Finally, females are more likely than males to be victims of childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, and rape.

Women are also reared to be responsible for families and relationships which brings added stress - they are often raising children in single parent homes, or working both in and outside the house with little help or support. In addition, mood disorders related to reproduction, such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PDD) and postpartum and perimenopausal depression can cause significant functional impairment in women. Genetic, hormonal, life stress and other psychosocial factors all appear to play a part in the origins and course of mood disorders leaving women at a much higher risk. Psychotherapy can be highly effective in helping to identify underlying problem areas while finding more adaptive coping responses to deal with the many stressors in a modern woman's life.
