Mental Health Treatment
Men and women are different in many ways, and mental health is no exception. Although men and women experience mental health conditions and struggles with substance abuse, they experience each differently. A vast body of research shows that women are more likely to be diagnosed with disorders such as depression or anxiety. In contrast, men are more frequently diagnosed with antisocial disorders, personality disorders, or substance abuse disorders. Additionally, data provided by studies conducted through the American Psychological Association suggest men and women develop mental health conditions and substance use disorders differently and for different reasons. However, one thing that does not seem to change between the genders is the link between mental health conditions and substance use disorders. Also referred to as a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis condition, millions of American adults of both genders struggle with addictions to drugs or alcohol while simultaneously trying to manage intense and overwhelming symptoms of a range of mental health conditions.
