RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals.

Postpartum Depression More Common

Share

A recent study of 1.1 million Danish residents from around 1973 to July 2005 sheds some new light on postpartum depression. Among other findings, the study showed that postpartum depression is more common in new mothers. The study determined that at least fifteen percent of new mothers develop postpartum depression. The findings indicated that postpartum depression could evolve into or accompany other mental illnesses such as clinical depression, bipolar and schizophrenia. Postpartum depression typically starts 10-19 days after giving birth and can linger for years thereafter if not appropriately treated. Among the 1.1 million studied, 1,171 mothers were hospitalized for a mental disorder after childbirth. The following is an excerpt of the article:

Postpartum depression is more common than previously thought. A new study shows at least 15 percent of all new mothers get it. For some it can be severe and can include clinical depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Postpartum depression typically begins 10 to 19 days after giving birth. Scientists say new mothers are more prone to psychiatric illness because of hormonal changes that accompany childbirth, but many women are reluctant to tell a doctor.
