Mental health has a significant impact on many aspects of women's lives. Relationships,
self-esteem, productivity at work, and even physical health may be impacted.
According to research, there may be a link between certain mental health conditions

Clinical depression is a severe mental health disorder that affects many people.
According to Google, there are more than 10 million cases of clinical depression each
year in India. And in women, regardless of their age difference, teenage girls
experience issues with their appearance that may develop into unhealthy obsessions
with weight and appearance and result in psychological eating disorders like bulimia.
Pregnant women also experience pre and post-natal depression. And menopausal
women over 50 may experience mental health problems as a result.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, women and men can experience the majority of the same mental disorders and conditions but may exhibit different symptoms. Several signs include:
● Misuse of alcohol and/or drugs
● Dramatic changes in eating or sleeping habits
● Appetite and/or weight changes

● Extremely high and low moods
● Aches, headaches, or digestive problems without a clear cause

Outpatient Mental Health Treatment:
● When a woman can't escape her responsibilities but still needs professional
assistance for a mental health condition, this treatment is available. Most
patients are engaged in employment, education or are bound by obligations
that they cannot release.
