What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Women's Health Innovations of Arizona was launched by a group of individuals in the healthcare industry who saw the gap in women's mental care - specifically during pregnancy, postpartum and parenting. The focus of medical professionals was almost exclusively on the health of the baby, infant or child, while women who needed support were usually silent or at a loss of where to turn. From this realization, WHI of Arizona began, creating an accessible channel to provide maternal mental health services. Today, we have a team of specialized professionals dedicated to changing the dialogue about Perinatal Mood Disorders. We strive to provide best-in-class maternal mental healthcare while educating the community about the prevalence of PMADs and providing information about options currently available to mothers in need. It is our pleasure to work alongside professionals and trained mentors who are experienced in this unique area of mental health.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

East Valley Perinatal Network (EVPN)

The EVPN was developed to meet then needs of those mothers and families who are uninsured or underserved by providing low cost or no cost coaching and counseling services.

Population(s) Served
Parents
Adults

We offer specialized treatment and support for maternal mental health disorders. Our highly-trained team includes peer perinatal coaches who walk alongside women and their families helping to navigate the available resources community-wide. Our focus is on meeting the needs of under-served and/or uninsured pregnant, postpartum and parenting families. 

At WHI of Arizona, we treat women and families as a team. Perinatal Mood or Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) are never an isolated problem to be dealt with as an individual. We believe in a collaborative approach involving the entire family. Our treatment may include couples counseling, support groups, psychiatry, healthy family home visits, and more.

Population(s) Served

We understand the process of becoming a parent and moving through the many transitions of parenthood can be full of joy,  but also stress and struggle.

Many families are dealing with infertility, loss around parenthood, special needs, medical needs, school transitions to empty nesters. We are here to walk alongside you as you navigate these transitions and all that comes with them.

Population(s) Served

Defining a traumatic event is in the eye of the beholder.  Trauma is a distressing or disturbing event.  Many things can be considered traumatic - a diagnosis, bereavement, abuse, a natural disaster, an accident.  We understand and respect the individual's experiences and need to move through them in their way.  Our team has specialized training in assessing and treating trauma so you can be the best you can be.

Population(s) Served

Parental substance use can affect prenatal development, as well as early childhood and adolescent development. The parent may have difficulty in assuming a parental role. Our professionals have experience in counseling families going through these obstacles and focus on building resiliency within the family while demonstrating effective coping skills for each individual.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

At WHI, our team is focused on providing high-quality mental healthcare counseling and support services for mothers and families in need during pregnancy, the postpartum period and parenthood. Our goal is to provide accessible and exceptional care to all families experiencing difficulties with these transitions. We are compassionate about supporting families and assisting on their journey to bring them success in childbirth, familial relationships and family life.

We aim to improve the mental health and well-being of mothers and families from pregnancy through parenting. In order to provide services to all women in need, we will work to support individuals regardless of their financial status. By providing expert care and continuous support, we will enable families to experience healthy, happy and productive lives.

Through our extensive network of partners including local hospitals, community agencies and local prescribers, we are able to serve our clients utilizing best practices and taking advantage of our team’s collective knowledge for approaching treatment.

In the future, we aim to provide consistent bedside support at in-patient facilities by creating relationships with different providers in the valley.

We offer in-office and virtual counseling, coaching, and groups. In special cases, our team will provide in-home coaching services when appropriate. Additionally, we offer hospital-based and community-based groups at no-cost to reach a larger audience of women and families in need who may not currently be able to afford full-service care. In order to serve this population more effectively, we also encourage each new patient to reach out with insurance information. If we don't currently accept their insurance, our goal is to become credentialed.

WHI is partnered with fourteen organizations in the Phoenix area to collaborate on fundraising and future events that benefit our clients.

We are expanding our space to offer in-office groups, hiring additional therapists, expanding our community partnerships to provide services throughout the valley. Our coaches are state-certified peer supports and our Clinical Director and CEO are experts in the area of Perinatal Mental Health and Operations in clinical services.

Each year in existence the number of community members served had increased dramatically. More doctors have continued to be trained in identifying at risk mothers and provide the proper resources for care.
