Mental health

COGA doctors take a holistic approach to assessing our patients, and that means acknowledging that mental health is an inherent part of a person’s overall wellbeing. We know that nearly a third of New Zealand women have poor levels of mental and emotional wellbeing in general; we also know that anxiety and depression can increase during the treatment of gynaecological issues, during the transition into parenthood and for gender diverse people.

There are a number of ways we can support your mental health while treating your physical health. These include referrals to high-quality mental health providers, suggestions for lifestyle changes and support for developing habits that support good wellbeing.
