This book has reviewed the research undertaken on a broad range of reproductive health issues and their mental health determinants/consequences over the last 15 years from both high- and low-income countries. Evidence from peer-reviewed journals has been used wherever possible but has been augmented with results of a specific survey initiated to gather state of the art information on reproductive and mental health issues from a variety of researchers and interested parties. Valuable data from consultant reports, national programme evaluations and postgraduate research work was also compiled, analyzed and synthesized.

"... Given the size of the field, the book packs an extraordinary amount of accurate, useful, thoughtful, and thought-provoking information into its 170 pages. It provides the full-scale global perspective seldom found in our reference texts... Every mental health student, teacher, researcher, and clinician should be informed about "the mental health aspects of women's reproductive health". That is the very appropriate title of this excellent book."
