Gennev, the nation’s leading virtual menopause clinic, continues to lead the way in changing the standard of care for women in menopause. Together with LifeStance Health, one of the nation's largest providers of virtual and in-person outpatient mental healthcare, Gennev now provides integrated care to address both the physical as well as the mental health symptoms of menopause.
During perimenopause and menopause, women may experience impacts to their emotional health, including new or increased symptoms of depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions. And, up to 20% of women will be diagnosed with new onset major depressive disorder (MDD) in midlife.*
Mental health is a critical component of overall well-being, and Gennev clinicians will work closely with LifeStance’s team of psychiatric and psychotherapy clinicians as a collaborative care team to provide evidence-based, comprehensive treatment recommendations that offer a whole-person approach to menopause.
“Gennev is committed to delivering the most comprehensive menopause care for women, and our partnership with LifeStance will empower them to take control of their physical and emotional health needs,” said Jill Angelo, CEO, Gennev.
“Many women struggle with behavioral health symptoms during menopause, but we shouldn’t accept that as the status quo. Research shows that proactively addressing behavioral health conditions during menopause reduces the likelihood of a patient requiring crisis care. The results are improved quality of life and, ideally, a reduction of downstream behavioral health costs,” said Dr. Rebecca Dunsmoor-Su, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Gennev.
“We look forward to partnering with Gennev and bringing LifeStance’s trusted, affordable and personalized mental healthcare to their patients, ensuring they receive integrated treatment that specifically addresses their unique concerns during menopause,” said Dr. Anisha Patel-Dunn, Chief Medical Officer, LifeStance. “By collaborating with Gennev’s clinicians, we can more effectively care for the whole-person health of women experiencing menopause.”
