According to Dr. Pulkit Sharma, Clinical Psychologist, VIMHANS the common mental disorders in women are eating disorders, anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder. In Indian culture still girls are regarded less desirable than boys. Women are always encouraged to feel dependent and soft. This develops negative and submissive characters in them. While in their adolescence, they face lot of restrictions. They are restricted to mix with the opposite gender and even to go out. So they experience a sudden loss of freedom. When got married they have to adjust in a complete new environment. Working women are supposed to do multi-tasking. This imparts lots of mental stress to women.
