Marla Ahlgrimm discusses the differences in mental health between the genders.
There are obvious physical differences between the sexes. However, there are also differences that are not as easy to see with the naked eye. According to Marla Ahlgrimm, men and women develop differently from birth, and everything from societal roles to hormones impact their mental health. There are significant differences that are worth exploring.
Depression and anxiety
Marla Ahlgrimm says that women tend to experience depression twice as often as men. In addition to genetics and expected roles, gender biases that result in lower wages and thus greater economic struggles also contribute to the higher instances of major depressive disorders.
