Austin Oaks Hospital now provides a women’s inpatient psychiatric treatment dedicated to women ages 18 years old and older.
The services provided at our female mental health unit are aimed at helping women who are dealing with various mental health issues, need help coping with traumatic events, and for women facing grief, loss, and relationship issues.
Wellness is targeted for patients with a combination of brief intervention and solution-focused therapies. Our dedicated mental health professionals at Austin Oaks Hospital use concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, open process psychotherapy and expressive therapies (mindfulness, art therapy, music therapy, recreational therapy, and yoga) in a group setting.
Women & Mental Health
Mental health disorders can impact men and women differently. Some mental health disorders can be more common in women, such as depression and anxiety. Having a women-only unit to treat mental health issues allows our female adult patients to connect with other women who are possibly struggling with the same mental health illness.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), there are also certain types of disorders that are unique to women. For example, some women may experience symptoms of mental disorders at times of hormone change, such as perinatal depression, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and perimenopause-related depression.
What We Treat
The women’s inpatient treatment program at Austin Oaks Hospital can be effective for women dealing with the following mental health issues:
Major Depressive Disorder
Women and men both suffer from mental health issues, but women are nearly twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression as men. Treating depression in women can be key to positive steps forward.
Women’s depression treatment from Austin Oaks Hospital can help with depression and make sure you or your loved one does not become just another statistic. Call us at 512-440-4800 to get inpatient help for symptoms of depression.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD treatment must be handled with care, and our women’s trauma recovery program is sensitive to each person’s individual needs. Trauma treatment targets the issues and works on positive steps forward, and our women’s trauma group helps to show patients that they are not alone.
At Austin Oaks Hospital, we are more than prepared to help women with PTSD. Call our treatment center at 512-440-4800 or contact us online to get started.
Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, Eating Disorders and Obsessive Disorders
Our anxiety treatment programs for women are designed to address women’s mental health issues using evidence-based therapies and treatments.
Each individual in our program is different and so is their background — the female anxiety treatment from Austin Oaks Hospital understands that, and builds a program specific to their needs.
We also provide services for mood disorders, such as bipolar disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) and eating disorders.
Issues Related to Reproduction Difficulties
Reproduction difficulties can result in a variety of mental health issues. That’s why our treatment team and programs stand ready to help with taking care of mental health challenges before, and after pregnancy.
We offer inpatient postpartum depression treatment for women who may be struggling with issues following the birth of their baby. Postpartum depression is more common than you think after pregnancy, and Austin Oaks Hospital provides postpartum depression inpatient treatment to help new mothers.
Not only do we provide postpartum inpatient treatment, but we also provide inpatient services for mental health challenges stemming from infertility, psychosis, breastfeeding, menopause and loss of a pregnancy, including miscarriage counselling.
Counselling after a miscarriage can be a great way for individuals to open up about their feelings. Call us at 512-440-4800 or contact us online to learn more about our postpartum services, miscarriage counselling services and more.
