Women’s Mental Health Program in Phoenix, Arizona

Valley Hospital’s Women’s Mental Health Program provides a supportive environment and comprehensive treatment options to promote healing and empower women on their journey to wellness.

Women’s Outpatient Program

Here at Valley Hospital, we understand that women face mental health issues uniquely their own. That’s why we were the first in the Phoenix, Arizona, area to create a specialized treatment program to help women find hope and healing. From reproductive realities — postpartum depression and psychosis, depression and anxiety related to infertility, loss of pregnancy, breastfeeding and psychiatric medication — to other anxiety or obsessive disorders, trauma and relationship issues, our team of compassionate experts empower women to understand the emotional wounds that trigger these issues and develop the coping skills necessary to regain command of their lives.

Our Women’s Program offers the following services:

  • A full continuum of mental health services exclusively for women
  • A professional team of psychiatrists, master’s prepared therapists and 24/7 nursing care
  • Development of a collaborative interdisciplinary treatment plan
  • Integration, education and coordination with primary care providers and the referring agency
  • Active, individualized discharge planning
  • Gender-specific specialized groups
  • Diagnosis and medication education unique to women
  • Relapse prevention, medication compliance
  • Access to substance abuse groups, AA and NA

Our treatment team utilizes evidence-based therapies to address trauma and crisis, grief, loss and anxiety. In our Women’s Program, there is a focus on life skills, self-image, coping skills, women’s anger management, relationships and developing healthy boundaries.

We are proud to announce the use of Stephanie Covington’s Helping Women Recover: A Program for Treating Addiction, 3rd Edition in our Women’s Program.

Mental Health and Women

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, mental health disorders affect men and women differently. Women are more likely to experience depression and anxiety than men, but, more relevantly, there are several mental health disorders that are exclusive to women.

Some of these include:

  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
  • Perinatal depression
  • Perimenopause-related depression

Why Choose Us

While Valley Hospital offers many useful treatment options and services, the women’s program focuses on mental health disorders that women experience at a high rate. Our program, designed for people just like you, always has women’s mental health in mind and the unique support services that you may require.

Additionally, we offer the full continuum of care. What this means is that we offer multiple levels of care, including inpatient and outpatient treatment at our women’s mental health facility. By offering the full continuum, we can meet you wherever you are in your journey to recovery, as well as offer whatever services you may need along the way.

It’s common knowledge that the longer a patient stays in the continuum of care, the more likely they are to avoid relapse after treatment. If you attend residential treatment and then follow it with outpatient treatment or aftercare, you remain connected to the support system you built while in treatment.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and skills to live a happier, healthier life, and our continuum of services allow us to build those skills and focus on growth throughout your treatment.
