In May we celebrated National Women's Health Week. Good mental health is the most important part of a woman's overall health.   According to a recent survey by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 29 million American women, or about 23 percent of the female population, have experienced a mental health-related disorder in the last year alone, and those are just the known instances.

Experts say that millions of other cases may go unreported — and untreated.

Women’s Mental Health Facts

  • Women are twice as likely as men to get depression. 
  • Although men and women are affected equally by such mental health conditions as obsessive-compulsive disorder and social phobias, women are twice as likely as men to have panic disorder, generalized anxiety, and specific phobias. 
  • Women are twice as likely to develop PTSD following a traumatic event. 
  • Men die from suicide at four times the rate that women do, but women attempt suicide two or three times more often than men. 
  • Women account for at least 85 percent of all anorexia and bulimia cases and 65 percent of binge-eating disorder cases.
