World Mental Health Day 2022: Mental Health Disorders Are More Common Among Women In The 21st Century.
Mental health and empowerment are essential needs for women when it comes to coping with mental health crises.
A challenging aspect of recognizing gender differences and acknowledging a society dominated by men is how women’s mental health is viewed, especially since many women may also be experiencing unique health problems. Women face judgments from others that are often contentious and have a significant impact on their self-esteem and self-confidence, in addition to rejection from their families, discrimination, violence and hate crimes.
Boys and girls showed almost no difference in confidence until the age of 12. But by 14 the average girl had much less confidence than the average boy.
Mental health problems are often caused by low self-esteem, low self-worth, and a lack of confidence that develop in women during their teenage years, and persist throughout adulthood. Adult women impose pressure on themselves within their communities.
In the workplace and at home, trying to balance multiple roles can create conflict and lead to additional stress, a lack of work-life balance can lead to a higher cost of identity for women.
Due to discrimination, transgender women often have difficulty finding housing, employment, and financial security.
In the face of the pandemic, alarming trends are disproportionately affecting women. When cases or outbreaks are reported or an outbreak is declared, professional women are increasingly required to accommodate child care and homeschooling. During quarantine and lockdowns, the pressure of isolation increased, which resulted in a 20 percent increase in domestic violence and abuse, sometimes referred to as intimate partner violence.
The combination of stress, economic woes, and unemployment, as well as a lack of social services and medical facilities, is playing a major role in the rise of aggression.
