Well-Woman Chart

The 2020 update of the Well-Woman Chart, which includes the recommendation to screen for anxiety in adolescent and adult women is available now. Given the high prevalence of anxiety disorders, lack of recognition in clinical practice, and multiple problems associated with untreated anxiety, the addition of this recommendation is a great step forward in recognizing mental health as important preventive care.

womenspreventivehealth.org Recommendations for Well-Woman Care – A Well-Woman Chart was developed by the Women's Preventive Services Initiative (WPSI). Preventive care visits provide an excellent opportunity for well-woman care including screening, evaluation of health risks and needs, counseling, and immunizations.
