Our specialization focuses on perinatal mental health for women, men and families. We bring all the resources needed for complete intensive outpatient/partial hospitalization including onsite psychiatric services. Our holistic approach includes exercise/yoga classes, nutrition, sleep…even onsite child care.
What if you’re not pregnant or parenting?
While we specialize in perinatal mental health, we also serve general adult mental health. Call us today to learn more about how we can partner with you for your health.
A woman’s mental health before, during and after pregnancy is critical to the well-being of mother, child and family. When you attend the Better Beginnings ™ Mother/Baby Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) you get better, faster and with better outcomes. Our program helps you navigate the challenges of this time in your life in a compassionate, structured program.
The PHP program is six hours daily, Monday-Friday and include group therapy sessions, individual therapy, psychiatry and family sessions. The program can be started any day of the week. The therapeutic interventions utilized within the Better Beginnings ™ model of care are backed by evidence shown to be most efficacious for the perinatal population; however, every patient is unique and each woman’s treatment plan will reflect this.
Our IOP program is three days/week for three hours/day with individual and family sessions being scheduled outside of the IOP group session schedule.
We accept MOST health insurances. Because each insurance policy is so different, we work individually with each client to verify benefits. Please call us to learn more (352) 462-9484.
While psychotherapy is our first line of treatment, having onsite psychiatric services makes life easier when you are able to access mental health therapy and medication management in one place.
