Mental Health Services for Women Opens

Chicago Behavioral Hospital opened an inpatient and intensive outpatient women-only program for the treatment of mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, postpartum depression, and suicidality. Women who have an addiction to drugs, alcohol or prescribed medication can also receive treatment in The Women’s Program at Chicago Behavioral Hospital.

“We offer trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy and medication management for women of all ages and all walks of life,” says the Chief of Operations.

The program is offered on the newly renovated floor of the hospital and also in the outpatient program on the campus of the hospital.

“Women do not have to go through the hospital program to start the intensive outpatient program, if she does not need inpatient treatment she can start group therapy right away,” the outpatient program director said.

Chicago Behavioral Hospital offers free assessments available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with a mental health professional. In the assessment the patient and family can work together with a licensed clinician to choose the best option to begin treatment.

What makes Chicago Behavioral Hospital different from other hospitals is an evidence-based approach to behavioral healthcare. CBH plans to open a faith-based program that will be provided in collaboration with Meier Clinics, a nationally known provider of faith based counseling and mental healthcare based in Wheaton, IL.
