Women's Behavioral Health

With dedicated female psychiatrists and certified nurse practitioners, we are uniquely positioned to meet the needs of women.  

Holy Spirit's Behavioral Health Center offers a Women's Behavioral Health program that helps women with emotional and/or psychological problems during pregnancy, after giving birth, and as they try to balance family and work commitments. We offer services for those in every stage of life, including our geriatric group program with focused attention on the needs of senior women.

From gender-specific issues, such as perinatal and postnatal depression and menopausal-related concerns, to anxiety and post-traumatic stress due to sexual or physical abuse, our behavioral services can play a vital role in the health and well-being of women and their families.

Programs include group and individual therapy and marital and family therapy. A Behavioral Health Center psychiatrist follows the progress of each patient.

The Center also offers a free support group for pregnant women and new mothers with babies less than one year old. "Mom's Place" is for women who feel alone, afraid, overwhelmed, sad or worried. And the Capital Region Maternal Assistance Program (MAP) is designed especially for pregnant women who have a substance abuse problem, including nicotine.

For more information on any support group, program or service, please call (717) 763-2200.

Come improve your life.
