Abstract


Mental health is a state of complete physical mental and social well being and not mercely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 2001B). Gender is the single strongest correlate of risk for different types of mental disorders. Despite the robustness of this correlation, "gender "itself is a proxy term for a complex of biological, behavioral, social and psychological variables and processes,which remain as yet incompletely understood, under the outline of appetite, aggression, exploration, sleep, energy, violence, stress, mood and their biological rhythms as they are deferentially regulated and dysregulated in males and females, in relation to mental disorders. Women tend to be less delight about life than men and this may make them more vulnerable to mental illnesses. Women tend to develop internalized symptoms, where problematic feelings are directed towards psychosis, schizophrema, bipolar disorder, unipolar disorder, suicide, the adaptations aspects of life, including access to resources, methods of copying, styles of interacting with others, self evaluation, spirituality and expectations of others, all these influence mental health either positively or negatively The paper gives light on the mental health problem among women having the most important contribution to the global burden of disease and disability and core element of mental health promotionand their fruitul basis of broad spectrum approach..We need to develop preventive strategies like adherence counseling, crisis intervention, psychological counsehng social support and educational programs for awareness. The paper gives a brief overview of the disease and focuses on the behavior of women.
