Women’s Mental Health Blog

The National Institute of Mental Health reports that 1 in 5 women experience a mental health condition in the United States. Mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, or trauma hold women back from living happily. They also can affect physical health, so it’s critical to care for your mental health as much as it is to care for your physical health.

At Lightwork Therapy & Recovery, we strive to give women hope, treatment, and the resources they need to take care of their mental well-being. Read our mental health blogs to learn more about mental health disorders and what you can do to maintain a healthy mind! If you or a loved one are struggling with your mental health, visit our mental health facility for women in Woburn, Massachusetts or call today to find out how we can help!
