A quarter of Iranian women beset by depression
London, July 6 (IranMania) - According to the latest research carried out in Iran the number of women suffering from physiological disorders is twice that of men.
The Iran daily reported that the results of a survey carried out by the Psychology Institute show that 14.9% of Iranian men
suffer from some kind of mental disorder while the figure stands at 25.9% among Iranian women.
The head of the Institute, Dr. Jafar Bolhari considered the lack of a coordinated relief network in the country as the reason
behind this crisis saying: Many of the serious psychological diseases seen today among Iranian women were at first no more
than minor problems. Yet as these problems were left unnoticed, they gradually grew into complicated crises.
According to Dr. Bolhari the most serious psychological problem threatening Iranian women is depression. He noted that in
todays society when an Iranian woman counters a problem she does not know where to seek refuge and thats why she is
vulnerable toward psychological pressures.
