DEPRESSION IN WOMEN IN SCIENCE: WHAT FEWER WOMEN MEANS FOR THEIR MENTAL HEALTH
Depression and other mental health problems are surprisingly not so uncommon among women in science.
Although there is no available data we may assume that fewer women in science cause mental health issues.
Because women have many challenges when they decided to pursue a career in science.
However, it is very strange to hear any scientists with hours and hours of study to have mental health problems.
On the other women in science have many big obstacles in their path.
Hence the fact that there are so few in their working place it may affect them mentally if their employers are not taking actions against it.

But there are many other challenges the women have to face that may be the cause of mental burden in their lives.
In this episode, we are referring to the four main challenges on how they may affect the mental health of women in science.
