Women's Mental Health

The Women’s Mental Health Interest Group is dedicated to improving training and education regarding mental health disparities and clinical issues that chiefly affect individuals who identify as women. The group is comprised of medical students, residents, and faculty who are interested in better caring for women suffering from mental health issues. Topics covered may include gender-based violence such as sexual trauma, intimate partner violence, perinatal psychiatry, fertility and mental health, and eating and body image disorders. Additionally, the group also advocates for increased training opportunities and clinical focus on women’s mental health within the residency program and department.
