SEVENTH ANNUAL OMAR PASALODOS, M.D., MEMORIAL LECTURE: Mental Health Issues Affecting Women Across the Life Cycle: Internal and External Factors
What role does mental health play in the overall health of women and girls?
The state of the science considers the impact of both social and biological factors on the mental health of our nation's women and girls. The role of violence and discrimination in the genesis of mental health problems in women requires special consideration. Evaluation of mental health problems in women must consider the full context of their lives, as distress in women often has social origins, and diagnoses should not be stigmatizing. Biological, life cycle, hormonal and other factors unique to females may be linked to a higher incidence among women and girls when it comes to depression, anxiety and psychological distress. Appropriate and continuing care – which includes supportive and rehabilitative mental health services across the life span – are essential to enable women to achieve their optimal level of functioning and well-being.
