The Rush Approach to Anxiety and Mood Disorders
As we create your care plan, we consider everything that may affect your anxiety or mood disorder. That includes your overall health, your environment, your history and research on cases like yours. A lot of this research is conducted at Rush, so we can often offer access to clinical trials of new treatments.
In the end, you'll get a plan that is both designed to fit your life and based on the latest science.
Rush Excellence in Anxiety and Mood Disorders Care
- Care designed around your needs: Rush has women's mental health care experts who specialize in anxiety or depression related to sexual trauma, infertility or pregnancy. We have geriatric mental health care experts who specialize in depression or anxiety in people 65 and older. And our addiction care experts treat the substance use and compulsive behaviors that sometimes come with anxiety or mood disorders. Whatever you're dealing with, we likely have a team member specially trained to help you with it.
- Innovative treatments: Many of our patients do well with medications, therapy or a combination of the two. But we understand that these treatments don't work for everyone. If they don't work for you, you'll have plenty of other options at Rush. We were one of the first health systems in Illinois to offer transcranial magnetic stimulation and esketamine (Spravato) for depression. We're also one of a handful of health systems to offer deep brain stimulation for OCD. Even if medications or therapies haven't worked, these newer treatments can ease your symptoms.
- Exceptional intensive care: The Rush Day Hospital in downtown Chicago provides partial hospitalization for patients with mood and anxiety disorders. It's a beautiful, light-filled space where a dedicated staff will help you heal. The Joint Commission, which accredits hospitals, recently called it "a beacon of light in a world full of darkness."
