Women’s Emotional Wellbeing
There is no doubt: Women are strong. But being a woman often comes with unique challenges, responsibilities and life experiences. Biological, social and environmental influences may cause emotional changes that make it difficult for a woman to cope and function at her best. To achieve a healthy balance, women can benefit from specialized, gender-specific care and support.
Let us help you face your unique challenges and needs. If you are experiencing behavioral or mental health concerns, please call (844) 556-2012 to get started.
Research shows that 1 out of every 5 women experiences coping issues and does not seek assistance to overcome obstacles. Difficulty coping may be due to:
- Experiences of discrimination
- Experiences of domestic or sexual violence
- Work-related stress unique to being a woman
- Stressors related to societal expectations
- Biological and chemical imbalances
- Societal pressures specifically placed on women, wives and mothers
- Overwhelming sense of obligation to take care of family
- Feelings of guilt or shame
