Summary "Who is more likely to develop mental health problems: men or women? And if there are differences between the sexes, what are the possible causes? The Stressed Sex is the first evidence-based investigation into the controversial issue of gender and mental health. Presenting eye-opening analyses of major epidemiological surveys, and drawing on cutting-edge scholarship in genetics, neuroscience, psychiatry, and cognitive, social, and clinical psychology, The Stressed Sex lifts the lid on a topic that to date has been largely neglected by mental health professionals and the wider public alike"--Back cover.
