Talking about Miley Cyrus could improve women's mental health

October 10 is World Mental Health Day, and Women’s Health Victoria is calling for community action on women’s mental health. Of concern are the high rates of depression, anxiety disorders, self-harm, suicide attempts and eating disorders in women – particularly among young women. Messages in popular culture (for example Miley Cyrus), can be an opportunity to discuss with a young woman what it means to be empowered.
