Women's Mental Health Across the Lifespan examines women's mental health from a developmental perspective, looking at key stressors and strengths from adolescence to old age. Chapters focus in detail on specific stressors and challenges that can impact women's mental health, such as trauma, addictions, and mood and anxiety disorders. This book also examines racial and ethnic disparities in women's physical and mental health, mental health of sexual minorities and women with disabilities, and women in the military, and includes valuable suggestions for putting knowledge into practice.

"Kathleen Kendall-Tackett and Lesia Ruglass have edited a must-have book for all mental health practitioners. The scope of women's mental health issues covered is truly expansive, starting with the mental health of adolescent girls and continuing through the lifespan of women. What a gift this book will be for all women who will benefit from the knowledge their mental health clinicians will gain from reading this valuable book." - Cheryl Tatano Beck, DNSc, CNM, FAAN, Board of Trustees Distinguished Professor, School of Nursing, University of Connecticut

"For many years, the biomedical model has failed to describe contextual factors that shape women's health development. By integrating science and practice with a developmental perspective that takes into consideration cultural issues affecting women's health, this book achieves just that. The authors address vital topics that could help address health disparities in women, such as the problem with overgeneralized results, the impact of racism on health, and the different cultural expressions of distress." - Sandra Mattar, PsyD, supervisor, Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology, Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Medicine
