Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety is a feeling described by an upsetting condition of inward disturbance, frequently accompanied by nervous behavior like pacing back and forth, substantial objections and rumination. Anxiety is the desire of future threat. Depression is a condition of low mood and antipathy for a movement that can influence any one’s thoughts, behaviour, tendencies, emotions and feeling of prosperity. Stress a type of mental agony is a feeling of strain and pressure. Stress can build the danger for strokes, heart attacks, ulcers and depression.

Depression, anxiety, psychological distress, sexual violence, domestic violence and escalating rates of substance use affect women than men across different countries and different settings. Pressures created by their multiple roles, gender discrimination and associated factors of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, overwork, domestic violence, and sexual abuse, combine to account for women's poor mental health. When women dare to disclose their problems, many health workers tend to have gender biases which lead them to either over-treat or under-treat women.
