The Menstrually Related Mood Disorders Program is run by Dr. David R. Rubinow, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry. Patients are offered assessment, treatment, including psychotherapy and hormone replacement therapy for women with mood disorders and hormonal disturbances surrounding menopause or their monthly cycle.

Menopause Clinic

Our goal is to support women and their providers who are seeking further understanding of whether the hormonal changes of menopause may be playing a role in their current symptoms. We provide specialized consultations which includes a reproductive and psychiatric evaluation as well as discussion of recommendations for the management of hormonally associated mood and anxiety symptoms. Patients can call (984) 974-5217

Premenstrual Syndrome Clinic

If you feel you may have severe Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), please call us at 984-974-5217 to discuss our evaluation process. All women will undergo an initial screening and evaluation to determine severity of mood symptoms over the course of the menstrual cycle. Women can then schedule an appointment in an appropriate clinic, or participate in PMS research.

PMDD Research

UNC Researchers within the Department of Psychiatry are investigating severe PMS and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). There are multiple research studies available for participation. These studies are intended to investigate the causes of PMDD and will help guide the development of future treatment interventions.
