Focus on Women’s Mental Health

The objective of the Focus on Women’s Mental Health section is to recognize and address the need for gender-based research. Authors are invited to submit well-designed, well-conducted studies of epidemiologic, biological, psychosocial, economic, and health services aspects of women’s mental health issues. Topics of interest include all aspects of mental health issues pertinent to the female reproductive lifespan, disorders that disproportionately affect women, and inquiries into how gender impacts the course and treatment of disorders that affect the sexes equally.

We encourage authors to submit papers for consideration as a part of our Focus on Women’s Mental Health section. Please contact Marlene P. Freeman, MD, at
