[And if we speak about men?]

Sante Ment Que. 1990 May;15(1):134-44.
[Article in French]


This article raises questions about some of the perverse effects of the reasoning behind correlations between sex and health in our socio-cultural context. Such a reasoning strongly denounces the psychosocial problems of women, but tends to forget the vulnerability of men which is nonetheless clearly evident in official statistics on suicide, dependence on alcohol and other drugs, violence and itinerancy.
