Gender and Mental Health

This paper reviews, from a gender perspective and a non-medical viewpoint, two textbooks widely used in the undergraduate training of medical students. The absence of gender issues in the two textbooks parallels the overall low status of the influence of social, cultural and economic factors in the aetiology of mental disorders and access to appropriate mental health services. Both books, to a lesser or greater extent, privilege biology over all other aetiologies.
