At Bon Secours Virginia, we can help you deal with the stress of modern life. And, we know a lot exists. More than ever, women are trying to balance work and home responsibilities. Women also often face unexpected events, like job loss, domestic violence, physical assault and the illness or death of a loved one. Plus, changes in physical health can profoundly affect emotional health. Depression, anxiety and eating disorders affect girls and women more than often than men do.
Clinical depression is common among women 65 or older and can last longer than in younger women. This condition also can increase the risk of other illnesses, like cardiovascular disease. We offer many effective depression treatments, including talk therapy and medication. In addition, we provide electro convulsive therapy for women above 65 who have a serious depression unresponsive to other treatments.
We give women a safe place and the skills needed to make positive lifestyle changes. Our care team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers.
They can help you with:
- General depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders
- Eating disorders
- Weight and stress management
- Substance abuse
