Psychiatric Services for Partners

Recent research has shown that postpartum depression can occur in partners who are also caring for a newborn. Adjusting to a new family dynamic, and managing the stress of infertility or loss of a baby, increases the risk for experiencing mood and anxiety symptoms. Those who have dealt with mental illness in the past, are at a much higher risk for experiencing those symptoms again. Our clinic provides both psychiatric care and psychotherapy support for partners who are going through difficult times, as well.
