Mental health profiles of women who access counseling services.
Mental health profiles of women who access counseling services. The study examined associations between mental health comorbidity (diagnosed with anxiety and depression) and use of counselling services among 11,201 Australian women aged 50–55. Only 6.9% of women had consulted a Counsellor/Psychologist/Social Worker in the past year. Women were more likely to have received counselling as the number of mental health diagnoses increased and SF-36 mental health scores decreased. The study extends previous research on the relationship between mental health and use of counselling services by examining dose response relationship and by controlling for a large number of covariates.
