Supporting women with mental health issues
Nicky Lambert Director of teaching and learning, Department of Mental Health, Social Work and Integrative Medicine, Middlesex University, London, England
The number of women experiencing mental ill health has increased, with young women more likely to experience mental distress than their male peers. Despite this, few NHS mental health trusts have a women’s mental health strategy in place, which suggests that there are opportunities to improve the skills and confidence of staff supporting women in mental health services. This article explores mental health issues experienced by women and aims to help staff develop a gender-informed understanding of mental healthcare to help improve the care of women.
