MGH Center for Women's Mental Health
The Center for Women’s Mental Health is a clinical and research program within the Department of Psychiatry at MGH. Our Program is dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of psychiatric disorders associated with female reproductive function. The Program provides a range of clinical services to women which include: consultation regarding the use of psychiatric medications during pregnancy; treatment for postpartum mood and anxiety disorders; treatment for premenstrual syndrome; and treatment of menopause related mood and anxiety symptoms, sleep disorders, and hot flashes. The Program is also the base for the National Pregnancy Registry for Atypical Antipsychotics, a study of the reproductive safety of medicines used to treat a number of conditions in reproductive age women. Our research examines a wide range of questions which affect the lives of women with psychiatric illness (see www.womensmentalhealth.org for more information).
