Holland Hospital Behavioral Services therapists have the specialized training and expertise in treating women.
Mental illnesses affect women and men differently - some disorders are
more common in women. In addition to the health concerns that accompany being female, such as
pregnancy and the postpartum, hormonal changes and menopause, women
today face unprecedented pressures in balancing the demands of home and
career-and the personal and family stresses that often result.
Women are two times more likely than men to develop certain
mental health conditions like depression, eating disorders, and panic
disorders. Women are also two to three times more likely to attempt
suicide, although four times more men die from suicide.
Symptoms can also differ between men and women, so it’s important to
understand the different factors that can contribute to each illness.
For example, females tend to report more physical symptoms in relation
to mental illness. These can include fatigue, loss of appetite,
restlessness, nausea, and headaches.
