U.S. Women More Likely Than Men To Experience Acute Mental Health Issues, CDC Says
Women living in the U.S. are more likely than men in the U.S. to have acute mental health issues, according to new data from CDC's National Center for Health Statistics. The data were gathered through in-person interviews conducted by the Census Bureau for the annual National Health Interview Survey. The survey includes six questions that gauge whether individuals are highly likely to have diagnosable mental health conditions.
