The last few decades have seen the world become a better for women and girls but there is still much work to be done when it comes to mental health.
When it comes to women’s health and wellbeing, we’ve come a long way with increased awareness and action addressing some of the main issues that are impacting Australian women and girls.
Unfortunately, one area where we’ve not seen significant positive gains is in mental health.
The recent National Study of Mental Health and Wellbeing shows women are more likely to report mental health issues than men. For some conditions such as anxiety, PTSD and disordered eating, women are significantly more impacted, and these concerning statistics extend across women of all ages and all backgrounds.
