Investing in women’s mental health: strengthening the foundations for women, families and the Australian economy

Policy Online carries a link (20.4.16) to an Australian Health Policy Collaboration research paper which identifies the specific risks and needs confronting women with mental health issues.

‘The AHPC policy paper, Investing in women’s mental health, strengthening the foundations for women, families and the Australian economy, discusses the extensive evidence that women’s mental health needs are significantly different from those of men. Certain mental illnesses are more prevalent in women, they use mental health services more frequently than men, and they want a broader range of treatment options than are currently available.

‘… This paper argues that it is time for a new approach aimed at tackling these gendered risks and enhancing protections across the life course.’
