With an emphasis on physical care, the subject of mental health care is seldom mentioned. Women are encouraged to take good care of their bodies and their health, but they rarely are given the option to engage in self-care. In fact, many people find the subject uncomfortable to speak about because they’ve spent so much time caring for others that they’ve managed to neglect themselves.
