Women may experience certain biological, environmental, and psychological challenges related to gender and these concerns can have a significant impact on mental health and well being. Research shows that women are more likely to show signs of depression and anxiety than men are and depression is one of the most common women's mental challenges and more women are diagnosed with depression each year.
According to a recent survey by the American Psychological Association (APA), stress is on the rise for women and many women have to balance work and family lives. Today more than 29 million women in the United States (or about 23%) struggle with mental health concerns. Some concerns are depression, anxiety, eating disorders, postpartum depression, domestic violence, infertility, miscarriage/infant loss, grief and loss, infidelity, low self-esteem/low-self worth, trauma, and a struggle to find work/life balance.
