Course Description :
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. Biological, life cycle, hormonal and other factors unique to females may be linked to a higher incidence of depression, anxiety and psychological distress. Appropriate, non-stigmatizing 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.
Learning Objectives :
• Distinguish the role that mental health plays in the overall health of women throughout their life cycle.

• Evaluate mental health problems in women considering the full context of their lives, recognizing social and biological origins.
