Oct. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- North Brunswick Township CDP, NJ, October 22, 2010 -- In response to a growing demand for services that address the mental health needs of women, Princeton House Behavioral Health (PHBH) is now offering its specialized set of Women’s Programs in North Brunswick.

The arrival of these programs represents a significant expansion of women’s mental health services in Central New Jersey by PHBH, as previously these services had only been offered from its Princeton, Hamilton and Cherry Hill locations.

“We’ve seen increasing demand for services from Middlesex County, with some women now traveling an hour or more,” said Nathalie Edmond, Psy.D., director of  PHBH Women's Programs. “Bringing our Women’s Programs to North Brunswick improves access to the specialized behavioral health care that women need.”

The programs are organized into four tracks: Women’s Wellness; Women’s Trauma; Women’s Trauma and Addiction; and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) Skills.

Mental illnesses often affect women and men differently – some disorders are more common in women, and some express themselves with different symptoms. The increased understanding of these differences has brought about more specialized treatment like the Women’s Programs of PHBH, a unit of Princeton HealthCare System.

Research has shown that women have better outcomes in such “gender-sensitive” programs where therapists have greater insight into women’s perspectives, their responses to different treatment approaches and even the different impact medication can have on their physiology.  For example, women who have experienced trauma tend to have better outcomes in women’s only group therapy sessions, where they feel a greater sense of safety, and are more likely to share their personal experiences, said Edmond.

The Women’s Programs will be offered on an outpatient basis from PHBH’s existing North Brunswick site at 1460 Livingston Avenue following a 6,200 square-foot expansion for new group therapy rooms, consultation rooms and offices for physicians and clinicians.

PHBH has also launched a centralized admissions number -- (609) 688-3707 -- where people can call to obtain information or schedule an appointment for any of the Women’s Programs regardless of location.
