Womens Mental Health Q & A

Why is women’s mental health treatment necessary?

Mental health disorders like anxiety and depression affect women differently than men. Often, mental health problems are more common in women due to hormone fluctuations that occur in pregnancy, menopause, and during monthly menstrual cycles.

Adelpha Psychiatric Group offers psychiatric evaluations and personalized treatment for a range of mental health conditions in women.

The team specializes in managing reproductive psychiatric disorders like postpartum depression to protect your quality of life and improve your mental health.

When should I schedule a women’s mental health consultation?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Adelpha Psychiatric Group if you experience persistent mental or emotional health problems in the days leading up to your period, during a pregnancy, or in your transition to menopause.

Adelpha Psychiatric Group provides comprehensive women’s mental health care to address:

  • Eating disorders
  • Panic disorder
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Other mood disorders

The medical team also specializes in managing postpartum depression, which causes persistent depression following childbirth. Postpartum depression can make bonding with your baby difficult and increase your risk of self-harm and suicidal thoughts (suicidal ideation).

What can I expect at my initial women’s mental health consultation?

During your initial women’s mental health consultation, the Adelpha Psychiatric Group team reviews your personal and medical histories. They discuss the mental or emotional symptoms you have. They might order bloodwork and other lab tests to rule out underlying medical problems.

A psychiatric evaluation can reveal more information about the cause of your symptoms. Once the team reaches a diagnosis, they personalize a care plan to ease your symptoms of depression or anxiety and stabilize your mood.

The providers offer medication management to supervise your use of psychiatric medication. They also provide psychotherapy services to give you and your loved ones mindfulness tools to cope with a mental health disorder.

Routine checkups are available in the office and through the virtual telehealth platform. The team continues to monitor your mental and emotional wellness and can adjust your treatment when needed.
