Anxiety and depression: Calming the emotional roller coaster

Between running careers, families and households, women are multitasking all the time in a society that hasn’t quite formed itself around our multiple needs for maternity leave, childcare, elder care and other support systems. With so much on our plates, it’s no wonder that anxiety and depression are twice as common in women as in men.

National Alliance on Mental Illness

NAMI's support and public education efforts are focused on educating America about mental illness, offering resources to those in need, and insisting that mental illness become a high national priority. Mental illness is a serious medical illness that affects one in four families. No one is to blame. Treatment works, but only half of people living with mental illness receive treatment. NAMI has engaged in a variety of activities to create awareness about mental illness and promote the promise of recovery.
