Depression is a characteristic of women
Mental disorders are a clear reality in contemporary societies. Depression, anxiety, antisocial among other misconduct evidence everywhere in all cultural environments. The strange thing is that these disorders are not presented in the same way men and women, but with variations by gender.
Mary Sorrows Oliveras, Chief of Psychiatry Service at the Hospital Sant Joan d’Alacant, has indicated that women are often prone to disorders such as anxiety and depression, whereas men are prone to antisocial behavior and drug use.
In addition the expert diagnosed that these disorders occur in different proportions between men and women. While in the first of these diseases occur between 8 and 21 percent in women with the disorders occur with the highest proportion, this being between 20 and 34 percent.
These differences in gender proportions correspond to the realities that women live in today. It is a fact that women are very diverse pressures in everyday life today. Pregnancies, multiple jobs and occupation of household chores to tend to the woman’s life is not easy. Not to mention, of course, situations in which violence against women live.
The causes of the occurrence of these phenomena are, as you can guess, different. It is true that there are certain biological patterns in each of the two genres that influence the occurrence of these disorders, but what most influences them is the sociocultural reality.
It is important to change the habits and structure of daily life to avoid suffering from these problems. A life full of stress and obligation is not safe condition for this mental health problems manifest in its fullness. Go have fun, interact with others, have free time, meditate, build family experiences or invent other strategies. Only we ourselves can worry about our mental health.
