Women´s Mental Health: An evidence based review

WHO, Eds.: WHO, (2000)

This document adopts a health determinants framework for examining the evidence related to women’s poor mental health. From this perspective, public policy including economic policy, socio-cultural and environmental factors, community and social support, stressors and life events, personal behaviour and skills, and availability and access to health services, are all seen to exercise a role in determining women’s mental health status. Similarly, when considering the differences between women and men, a gender approach has been used. While this does not exclude biological or sex differences, it considers the critical roles that social and cultural factors and unequal power relations between men and women play in promoting or impeding mental health. Such inequalities create, maintain and exacerbate exposure to risk factors that endanger women’s mental health, and are most graphically illustrated in the significantly different rates of depression between men and women, poverty and its impact, and the phenomenal prevalence of violence against women.

World Bank, (2018)

The 2014-2015 outbreak of Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Liberia resulted in over 10,000 cases and 5,000 deaths. Recognizing the importance of addressing children’s trauma, the Ebola recovery and restoration trust fund (EERTF) funded the implementation of a Comfort for kids (C4K) program which encourages psychological healing, and promotes resilience in children who have experienced a crisis or disaster. The C4K program in Liberia was implemented between January 2015 and December 2016 in fifteen townships in Montserrado County through a collaboration between Mercy Corps Liberia, the World Bank’s Liberian health task team, and the government of Liberia. C4K primarily centers on the My Story workbook and associated classroom activities, which provide children with the opportunity to express their emotions about their experiences through drawing, writing, and facilitated discussion.

Восстановить и улучшить. Устойчивая охрана психического здоровья после чрезвычайных ситуаций

JoAnne Epping-Jordan, Mark van Ommeren, Peter Ventevogel et al., Eds.: World Health Organization, (2014)

Чрезвычайные ситуации возникают по целому ряду причин: природные бедствия, такие как землетрясения и наводнения; вооруженные конфликты и гражданские войны; техногенные катастрофы, включая радиационные аварии. Вне зависимости от природы пускового фактора результатом часто является череда человеческих страданий. Речь может идти о крупномасштабных вынужденных перемещениях населения, дефиците пищевых продуктов, вспышках болезней, нарушении прав и достоинства человека и смертях. Путем публикации данных материалов ВОЗ ставит перед собой цель обеспечения того, чтобы в условиях чрезвычайной ситуации не упускались возможности для реформирования системы охраны психического здоровья.
