The editors of The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry are excited to kick off a new series,Focus on Women’s Mental Health. In the April Journal, Dr. Katherine Wisner discussed sex-based differences in her editorial, “Sex and Psychiatry in the Next 5 Years.” Dr. Wisner articulated differences between men and women, as impacted by biology and environment, and the potential of future research to delineate important advances based on the incorporation of an understanding of sex and gender. In the current issue, we have selected peer-reviewed articles about postpartum depression to commence this new section.
