So, when we think about trauma-related psychiatric disorders such as PTSD and depression, we understand that they affect more than twice as many women than men. And that women are also more likely to experience chronic illness that persists for more than a year. Despite the evidence of sex differences in the epidemiology of trauma-related disorders, little research has outlined clear risk pathways in women. Recent findings are setting the stage for more detailed investigations of sex dependent neurobiological risk factors of trauma-related psychiatric disorders and how to prevent, screen, and treat them. Equally important, structural systems such as health care, carceral system, foster care system can generate trauma-related experiences for women.
