Mental Health Issues That Only Women Experience

The National Institute of Mental Health or NIMH offers a wealth of information that you can access on the Internet. Gender-specific mental health issues are just beginning to get targeted attention in research circles. There is no way to give a black and white version of how mental health affects women as opposed to its effect on men. It is important to note that mental disorders affect everyone differently. Mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety, are more common in females. In fact, they are the most common mental health concerns for both sexes. 

The mental health issues that only women experience are related to hormones. Namely:

  • Perinatal Depression
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
  • Perimenopause Related Depression  

These conditions are related to estrogen and progesterone levels, as well as childbirth and other hormonal events. Though these maladies are specific to women, mental health, in general, is experienced by both sexes. However, they are experienced in different ways and require individualized professional attention

Non-Gender Mental Health Issues

Some non-gender specific symptoms of a mental health issue can be:

  • Associated with suicidal thoughts or ideas 
  • Extremely high and low mood swings

This is not an exhaustive list, and there are many more symptoms that you may experience. Having open communication with a professional is the beginning. Learning how to combat mental health issues requires discussion. Women are accustomed to taking care of others at times to their detriment. When things go askew, it’s essential to learn the signs. This is not something that has to be kept to yourself. You can call us here at Aspen Ridge or speak with your family physician or a mental health provider.

Women experience these disorders differently, and professional therapeutic intervention is the best course of action.
