Mental Health

Caring for ALL of You.

If anxiety or depression are impacting your daily life, it’s easy to feel lost and alone. That’s because mental health struggles make it more challenging to navigate work, relationships, or taking care of your other daily tasks. While both men and women experience mental disorders, women are affected differently with specific mental health issues unique to women only, such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, postpartum depression, and perimenopause depression.

Common symptoms of mental illness include:

  • Constant feelings of sadness and hopelessness
  • Dramatic changes in eating or sleeping habits
  • Alcohol or drug use to cope with negative thoughts
  • Excessive fear or worry
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Diminished energy and fatigue
  • Social withdrawal
  • Suicidal thoughts or ideation

Mental illness is treatable. You have nothing to be ashamed of, because many women face the same issues you are coping with now. Our professional mental health clinicians at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital for Women understand how important it is to address issues such as emotional or substance abuse problems. That’s why we provide a safe, supportive, healing place to discuss your struggles with doctors who care.
