This text offers a gendered and cross-cultural analysis of the experience of mental disorder and of society's response to its sufferers. Incorporating theories on masculinity and femininity and on the concept of normality, it discusses the differences and similarities between both legal and lay definitions of mental disorder and corresponding patterns of service provision and usage.
