7:15am ­ 8:00am Registration/Continental Breakfast 8:00am ­ 11:45am Depression and Anxiety

3.25 CE 3.25 Rx

Chair: Barry Eliot Cole, MD, MPA Women bear an unequal burden of mental health problems. At age 13, girls have twice the rate of depression as boys. The childbearing years are marked by high rates of depression. Clinicians should be knowledgeable about the types of psychotropic medications that are safer than others during pregnancy. Postpartum depression can have serious consequences when un diagnosed and unmanaged. During midlife and th e menopausal transition, women are more likely to have either a new onset of depressive symptom s or their first diagnosis of major depression. Clinicians who care for women need to be aware of how to diagnose and treat depression and anxiety, as well as to manage women through the seasons of their lives. This session will cover issues related to diagnosis, basic manage ment, and psychopharmacology of anxiety and depres sion for clinicians who may be a woman's primary (or only) care provider. It is designed to build confidence in clinicians aiming to manage female patients' mental health problems in the primary care setting.

Through participatory problem-solving ex ercises, the symposium will provide insight on individ ualizing patient counseling as an important step in helping each woman with cyclic heavy menstrual bleeding identify the treatment regimen that best suits her needs.

abnormal uterine bleeding. When is bleeding too heavy? When is amenorrhea normal? How do clinicians manage these problems with the current armamentarium of drugs and devices? Regardless of the hormonal method of c ontraception that women choose , bleeding alterations tend to occur. How can bleeding/non-bleeding problems related to the use of hormonal contraceptives be managed?
