Physician, Reveal ThyselfRush has begun including patient survey results in individual physicians' online profiles. It's among few U.S. medical centers, and the only one in the Midwest, to make this information available to potential patients.
Offering Warmth on a Cold January DayRush kicks off its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, when students from the University's colleges participate in service events on their rare day off.
I am one of the co-directors and founders of the Center for Women’s Behavioral and Mental Health. I see exclusively women, and I see them during periods of emotional vulnerability. So, really, those can be mood fluctuations during their cycle. I see a lot of women that are planning pregnancy — who have prior histories of depression and anxiety — and wanting to know the best way to go forward and the safety of medications if they need it. I also see women if they’re experiencing post-partum depression.
There are a lot of psychiatrists out in the community that don’t necessarily feel comfortable treating women with any mood or anxiety disorders during pregnancy or post-partum. And, we really are a safe environment for them to refer their patients to because we have a full understanding of the safety of medications during pregnancy and post-partum.
