Men are likely to be dull in the perception of symptom, which delays their help seeking behavior. As they do not care much about their health, it results to impact their health greater as illness might have progressed severely In contrast women have higher tendency to seek for help when they experience symptoms or are likely to have general check up which results to heighten their mortality rate compared to men with low mortality rate. Help seeking behavior has a direct impact on mortality rate. Hence, the differences in illness severity among genders are strongly influenced by their help seeking behavior. Although certain diseases can be prevented if found early, men tend to disregard the importance of medical seeking and lower their mortality rate even with a stronger body than
Women as carers often report poorer physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing because of their caring responsibilities. This can be associated with disturbed sleep, being physically injured while providing care, and the constant pressure of caring. Time spent caring, and coping strategies, are factors in shaping carer stress. Within the caring population, female carers in particular experienced much lower levels National Women’s Health Policy 2010 of mental health compared to both male carers and the general population. This included increased levels of clinical depression, with over 50 per cent of female carers reporting being depressed for six months or more since they started caring.
The problem faced by them are several in the society, family, health etc., which makes them isolated from all means of life. Geriatric mental health is a emerging as an important public health concern. According to Word Health Organization, prevalence of depression in adults age >60 years in developed and developing countries was 0.5 million and 4.8 million respectively in 2070.

(Depression and Anhedonia”, 2009) states, “Anhedonia is one of the main symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD). It is the loss of interest in previously rewarding or enjoyable activities. People suffering from clinical depression lose interest in hobbies, friends, work”. This simply shows that when someone is dealing with Depression it makes them unable to show interest in things they were once interested in, making it harder to look at things positively and find pleasure in the good things in life. To prove this point, a professor named Aaron Heller did a study of the brain to show that individuals with Depression have a less positive response to certain things than someone without Depression.
This is important because Concussions can sometimes result in long-term injuries. This is a problem because you don’t want to live life in pain from one blow to the head. As said by Weill Cornell long-term concussion injuries may cause “Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can cause symptoms similar to a concussion, but people with these TBIs often experience more severe problems with attention and short-term memory, have difficulty
Early School Start Times Most adolescents don’t get nearly the correct amount of sleep and the early school start times make it worse. Having school start later would have a great impact on teens’ overall health. Some people may say that teens should just go to sleep earlier, but its not that easy.

Psychological factors such as anxiety, fatigue (e.g., eyestrain), and stress (e.g., long periods of concentration) as well as mechanical factors such as neck strain (e.g., working on a computer for prolonged periods) are often the culprits behind a typical tension headache. Migraines are generally more severe and can be debilitating. The cause of migraine is not known but many trigger factors are recognized. These include hormonal changes (during a woman's menstrual cycle), certain foods (e.g., chocolate, aged cheeses), beverages (e.g., red wine), strong odours, lack of sleep, and even stress. It is not uncommon to experience mixed tension-migraine headaches.
Every researcher have different point of view about the effect of age of onset of hearing loss on personality.

I believe lower-class communities are not offered the same opportunities as upper-class. However, there are certain opportunities that are offered in these communities and individuals choose not to take advantage of it, because it is easier to get the money than to work for the money, i.e. welfare. I think it affects the younger population the most because they don’t have encouragement all around. For instance, they might have great programs in the community, counselors who believe in them, teachers who are supportive, but if they go home to a parent who is mentally abusing them and badgering them, then they will feel worthless because that person whom they believe and have trusted their whole life is right, they will never amount to nothing.
