Young women are now a ‘high-risk group’ for mental illness

Our thanks to Martin for this, a piece in the Guardian. Oddly, no journalist is cited, and it’s ‘paid for by MQ: Transforming Mental Health’. Is this a sign of the financial pressures the ghastly rag is facing? MQ’s website is here.

One possible explanation for increasing rates of mental illness in young women is never admitted by government departments, nor in the mainstream media – the increasing pressure on women to act like men in terms of paid employment.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    “but they also said a new screening tool may be detecting more cases” And here is the problem increasingly such things pick up on “distress” or “stress” as it was called and decide people are ill rather than that such things are a part of life. I’m not sure whether its a good or bad thing that an increasing number of young women are being persuaded they are mentally ill. In a way its a gift to those of a traditional notion of gender as it appears solid proof that females are mentally fragile.
