Mental health issues can affect anyone irrespective of their age, gender, or race. There are millions of people that are affected by mental health issues. Studies show that biological factors do play an important part in the mental wellbeing and illness of a person. As a fact, women have a lower level of serotonin than men and also take a relatively long time to process the chemical which contributes to the mood fluctuations.

Common risk factors
Somatic symptoms, anxiety, high rates of comorbidities that are common in women, and depression are connected to factors like gender-biased roles, negative life experiences, stressors, and events. Women are also subjected to domestic violence. These stresses or traumatic events also cause women to drink. Women who have been physically or sexually abused also tend to abuse alcohol or drugs. Postpartum and late pregnancy periods can witness mental disturbance with post-partum blues being the most common illness which affects 50-80% of the new mothers.

Getting treatment
If you or someone who you know is going through mental health issues and facing a lot of pain then don’t wait to seek treatment.

You should understand that the sooner you approach someone for help, the earlier you’ll be able to free yourself from the mental constraints. You can find a lot of professional help from the doctors who will help you deal with your mental illness and help you start a new life very soon
