Women’s Health Issues
About 1 in 5 women in the US suffer from at least one mental health issue. It sounds like a large number, until you consider that mental health issues often affect a larger percentage or women as opposed to men in the same age ranges. Some of the most common mental health issues in women include depression, anxiety, postpartum depression and mood symptoms occurring during menopause.
While a large number of women suffer from these conditions, most may not be aware that these issues are treatable. This is where a Houston based psychiatrist can help!
As women, we tend to ignore our own health a bit more than we should. We’re often too busy taking care of other people to bother scheduling an annual checkup, let alone a women’s mental health checkup! We tend to push back things like adult anxiety and depression as just another part of a busy life that we need to manage, rather than treat.
