Good mental health is important for everyone, especially women. Mental wellness promotes improved quality of life, relationships, and physical health. In fact, research continually demonstrates how closely physical and emotional health are related. Our emotional health needs the care and attention just as we give our other health habits, such as exercise and nutrition, and these needs may change at different points in our life.
Mental health concerns can affect women and men in different ways and some disorders are more common in women, such as depression and anxiety. Women go through biological changes across their lifespan, more than men, and these changes can influence emotional states. For example, the role of hormones around pregnancy and postpartum periods. Social issues, environmental, and cultural factors can also play a role.
Our experts work with several of our specialties to address the unique and important mental health needs for women.
