Synopsis

The author proposes that the conditions, events, and experiences that contribute to serious mental health problems for a percentage of women, will at some point be experienced by all. Mental Health Issues presents two basic themes: that social contexts and frameworks are experienced and expressed, and then subconsciously internalized as part of the self; and that specific diagnostic conditions, such as depression, alcoholism, or eating disorders, can emerge from dynamics that are experienced by most women.

Excerpt

There are two basic themes of the following chapters. First, social frameworks are eventually experienced and expressed as personal frameworks, that is, as part of the self and all the beliefs and feelings and actions that contribute to the self. Second, specific diagnostic conditions, such as depression, alcoholism, or eating disorders, emerge from dynamics that are experienced by most women. Therefore, the following chapters are pertinent to women in general and not only to women who are eligible for a formal diagnosis. Conditions, events, and experiences that contribute to serious problems for a percentage of women, will at some point be experienced by all. Both the experience and management of those conditions are shaped by gender.
