Mental Health Encompasses a Wide Variety of Conditions

Mental health is an umbrella term that refers to the emotional, psychological and social well-being of an individual. One’s overall mental wellness can be affected by a variety of biological and psychosocial factors and can fluctuate over time and circumstances.

Due to a variety of physiological, hormonal and societal factors, some mental health disorders are more common in women than men, including depression and anxiety. And some, are unique to women alone, including those related to fertility, pregnancy and menopause. At University Hospitals, our team of women’s mental health experts are specially trained to recognize and treat all of the psychological disorders and conditions experienced by women.
