Women’s Mental Health Issues
Post by on Sunday, May 1, 2022
Women often face different mental health challenges than men. Women have higher rates of anxiety and depression, which can be related to physical health factors. Changes in hormones can lead to postpartum depression, depression during menopause or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). How women experience mental health conditions can also be different. While some men may act out in anger due to depression, women are more likely to experience fatigue, sadness, and lack of motivation. You can do things such as:
Build strong relationships with other people
Adapt quickly to change
Experience a range of emotions in a healthy way.
Work and contribute productively.
A variety of factors can affect your mental function and health. These factors can be as simple as being sleep-deprived or hungry or as complex as eating disorders and major depression. Depending on your state of mental health, you can increase your wellbeing with healthy habits. If you’re concerned about the current state of your mental health, then seek the support of experienced healthcare professionals.
