In a study of a stratified random sample of 356 Canadian women, stress, anxiety and depression were among the most frequently reported health problems.
The first part of this paper outlines the different social characteristics of those who reported stress, anxiety and depression.
Women experienced mental health problems differently depending on their socio-economic status, ethnicity, family structure, the quality of family relationships and the nature of their participation in the labour market.
It is argued that we need a more detailed analysis of these aspects of women's estate if we are to understand the social production of mental health and variations between women.
