Women’s Mental Health


Women are more affected by depression, anxiety, psychological distress, sexual abuse, domestic violence and growing rates of drug use than men in various countries and different environments. Depressive disorders account for close to 41.9 percent of the disability from neuropsychiatric disorders among women compared to 29.3 percent among men.

Unipolar disorder is twice as prevalent in women and is expected to be the second leading cause of the global burden of disability by 2020.
