The IRTG 2804 (International Research Training Group 2804) is a collaborative effort between Tübingen (Germany) and Uppsala (Sweden) that aims to enhance interdisciplinary research and education on the topic of women's mental health during the reproductive years. Women undergo hormonal transitions multiple times throughout their lives that can impact brain plasticity and their cognitive and emotional processes, ultimately influencing their mental health. During these transition phases such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause the risk of mental illness increases dramatically, particularly with regard to affective, anxiety and stress-related disorders. The aim is to better understand the associations between these hormonal transition phases and women's mental health.
