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. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand.

Postpartum fatigue months after birth

A recent study published by Pat McGovern, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Minnesota, found that many more women than previously thought retain symptoms of fatigue, both physical and mental, nearly three months postpartum. Specifically, women 11 weeks after giving birth had approximately 4.1 postpartum related symptoms of fatigue. The study, published in the November/ December issue of Annals of Family Medicine, focused on a sample of 661 women ages 18 and up who, at one of three hospitals, gave birth to a single infant.

A practical point that can be gathered from this study is that women need restful environments postpartum. Employers can help facilitate this by ensuring that women have low-stress environments in the months immediately following child birth. The following is an excerpt of an article from Medpage Today that reviews the study:

At 11 weeks postpartum, working women reported an average of 4.1 childbirth-related symptoms, most frequently fatigue, reported Pat McGovern, Ph.D., of the University of Minnesota here, and colleagues in the November/December issue of Annals of Family Medicine.

Given the increased numbers of new mothers in the workplace, it is important to understand their need for rest and recovery and the factors that promote women’s postpartum health and successful return to work, the investigators said.

Their findings came from a prospective cohort study that included 661 English-speaking employed women, 18 or older, who gave birth to a single infant at one of three community hospitals in 2001.
