    Many people's lives, relationships, careers and wellbeing are blighted by the belief that to be liked, loved and accepted they have to limit themselves to the behaviours they believe are approved of by others.

    Recent research has shown a dramatic increase in the number of women and girls suffering with mental health problems. The Female Mind: A User's Guide is an up-to-date overview of how gender and sexuality affect mental health and will help women to self-identify and self-manage the symptoms of mental ill health. It gives information on the modern woman's place in the ever-changing social landscape, examining the influences of cultural and historical factors as well as discussing the physical science of the female brain and how it functions differently. It covers a wide range of specific mental health disorders - many of which are more common in women - and includes real-life case studies, the latest treatments and where to find further help and support.
