The most common problems for women were depression and phobias. Men suffered most from alcohol abuse and depression.

The researchers looked at 32 health surveys from 156,000 people. They found out when mental health problems first start. An important finding was that a lot of children have mental disorders. Young people need more help. They need services that treat their mental health problems.
