Abstract

Some key issues regarding gender differences in the prevalence of mental disorders, the course of mental illness, and the use of services are reviewed along with their diagnosis and psychopharmacologic treatment. Implications for clinical practice are examined as are directions for future research that will ensure the presence of women's mental health as a major element in the national agenda on women's health.
