Treatment for mood disorders
As part of our Perfect Depression Care approach, we assess all patients with depression for their risk of suicide.
Our providers complete a thorough evaluation and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and condition. Your treatment plan may include:
- Individual, family, or group therapy
- Psychiatric evaluations and medication management
- Medications, including antidepressants and other medicines to help improve your mood
- Partial Hospitalization Programs
- Cognitive behavioral therapy, a therapy technique focused on problem-solving, which will help you understand the disorder and better manage emotional triggers
- Dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, an evidence-based treatment shown to be an effective treatment for patients with suicidal thoughts or self-injury or those patients with borderline personality disorder
Depending on the severity of your symptoms, we may recommend inpatient psychiatric care. Learn more about inpatient psychiatric care options.
Depression in women
Women are nearly twice as likely as men to experience depression. Women may develop depression for a number of reasons, including family issues, relationships, and stress. In addition, approximately one in 10 women experiences depression during pregnancy or after giving birth.
In our experience, we understand that women with depression need different care than men. Our providers take women’s unique needs into consideration when we create treatment plans, including life stages and other factors.
Depression and mood disorders in children and teens
Caring for children and teens who have depression and mood disorders is different than caring for adults. Our pediatric providers specialize in treating the full range of mood disorders in young patients. Learn more about our mental health services for children and teens.
