This Lancet Psychiatry Series looks at the current state of gender-specific research in mental health and suggests future directions which might reveal more about the social and biological factors contributing to mental disorders in women, and inform better treatments. Addressing the relative lack of research on these underlying mechanisms, the series papers focus on psychosis, depression, and anxiety; a fourth paper explores the issue of violence against women, its mental health consequences, and violence intervention recommendations for clinical services.
