Date:5/11/2009

n steps for policy makers, health care providers, and researchers to take in an effort to address the burden of mental illness on women's lives and increase their capacity for recovery. "We have an unprecedented opportunity to improve the mental health of women," says Dr. Wanda Jones, Director of the Office on Women's Health and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "Our hope in releasing this report is that these groups will come together and turn these recommendations into action so that we better the health of our nation."

The Office on Women's Health also produced a booklet for women that addresses the stigma associated with mental health. Women's Mental Health: What It Means To You includes information on the signs and symptoms of mental illness, suggestions about where to turn for support and solutions for preventing and coping with mental illness.

Action Steps for Improving Women's Mental Health and Women's Mental Health: What It Means To You are available for free by visiting www.womenshealth.gov or by calling 1-877-SAMHSA-7 (1-877-726-4727).

Produced by OWH, the report was developed in collaboration with women's health and mental health experts from the National Institute of Mental Health, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Office of Minority Health, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Indian Health Service, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation and the Office of the Surgeon General.

National Women's Health Week, which kicked off on Mother's Day and will be celebrated until May 16, is a nationwide initiative coordinated by OWH to educate women about steps they can take to improve their health and reduce their risk for many diseases, including mental illness. In honor of National Women's Health
