Thanks to the Playa Vista Mom’s group for hosting my talk on women’s mental health last night. So glad that Dr. Natalie Zelta attended and provided an interesting point of view on mental health from the perspective of a primary care physician. There were many interesting questions on treatments for pregnant and postpartum women with regard to therapy and medication.
There are so many contacts that patients have with medical doctors through the course of their lives, but so often the visits that are scheduled for physical check ups do not provide the space to discuss one’s emotional well being. Having a therapist to turn to can be crucial when dealing with emotional angst.
