Single grandparents with children dating
September 17-23, 2017 is Unmarried and Single Americans Week.
Today, more than 45 percent of all Americans 18 and older are unmarried (divorced, widowed, or never-married), up from 28 percent in 1970.
The proportion of unmarried Americans has hit an all-time high.
A single parent is a person who lives with a child or children and who does not have a wife, husband or live-in partner.
It was lowest in Estonia (9%), Costa Rica (10%), Cyprus (10%), Japan (10%), Ireland (10%) and the United Kingdom (12%), while it was highest in Norway (22%), Spain (23%), Sweden (24%), Romania (25%) and the United States (25%).
Low-income women are less likely to receive mental health care for numerous reasons.
Mental health services remain inequitable for low-income, more so, low-income single women are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, and other poor mental health outcomes.
Financial hardships also affect the mental health of single mothers.
Women, ages 15–24, were more likely to live in a low socio-economic area, have one child, and not to have completed their senior year of high school.
