Abstract

Women often have different outcomes and experiences with mental illness compared to men. However, there is still a 'gender-blind' approach to the understanding and development of new treatments for mental illness. The emphasis is on women and schizophrenia, depression in women and existing sex differences in anxiety disorders (including phobias, agoraphobia, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder). Utilizing gender differences in the onset, course and outcomes of mental illness may enable a better development of best outcomes for women with mental illness.
