Abstract: Sex differences provide an interesting window on potential mechanisms involved in the development of psychopathology. I will review findings from the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health & Development Study related to male preponderance of both risk for and formal diagnosis of psychiatric disorder. Examples will be given for sex differences at both the phenotypic (ie surface) and biological level (eg telomeres). Implications of such sex differences for theory, research, and policy and practice will be considered.
