The Way You FEEL as a Woman Matters
Women are under more pressure than ever. The desire to succeed in professional and personal settings can place crushing amounts of stress on women at home and at work. Women are more often the primary caregivers in families and can experience stress balancing their multiple roles: mother, wife, co-worker, friend, etc. It can feel like there’s no respite from the to-do list of expectations.
Though mental health is relevant to everyone, there are mental health conditions unique to women. For example, reproductive-related conditions like postpartum depression as well as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), infertility, and menopause.
A study from 2011 found that 23.4% of women who recently gave birth expressed experiencing postpartum depression, among these women they commonly reported feeling ‘slowed down’. Females are generally more predisposed to hormonal fluctuations as well. Additionally, simple biological differences alone can prove key to the development of some mental health conditions specifically related to women.
There are so many reasons to focus on women’s psychiatric services in our community.
