Mental Health and Women with Janelle Chase-Mayers at Annual Women’s Health Medical Conference

Mental Health Globally

According to World Health Organisation (WHO)…

Gender and women’s mental health

Gender disparities and mental health: The Facts

Mental illness is associated with a significant burden of morbidity and disability.

Lifetime prevalence rates for any kind of psychological disorder are higher than previously thought, are increasing in recent cohorts and affect nearly half the population.

Despite being common, mental illness is underdiagnosed by doctors. Less than half of those who meet diagnostic criteria for psychological disorders are identified by doctors.

Patients, too, appear reluctant to seek professional help. Only 2 in every 5 people experiencing a mood, anxiety or substance use disorder seeking assistance in the year of the onset of the disorder.

Overall rates of psychiatric disorder are almost identical for men and women but striking gender differences are found in the patterns of mental illness.
