Who We Serve
Admissions information for the women’s trauma program at Seven Hills Hospital in Henderson, NV
At Seven Hills Hospital, we are proud to offer personalized care for women age 18 and older who are living with a history of trauma. Trauma is a broad term used to describe an event that causes an individual significant distress or discomfort. A variety of situations may be considered traumatic, including a major injury; exposure to forms of violence, abuse, or neglect; the sudden and catastrophic loss of a loved one; a natural disaster; or a life-threatening situation.
Some women who are living with a history of trauma may develop posttraumatic stress disorder or acute stress disorder. Other women may struggle with mental health concerns such as suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors, depression, or anxiety disorder, though they display no specific signs of trauma. Each of these women may suffer from the negative effects of trauma, and each can benefit from a specialized women’s trauma program to address these mental health concerns.

Features of Treatment
Elements of care in the women’s trauma program at Seven Hills Hospital in Henderson, NV
We are proud to be the only facility in southern Nevada to offer a specialized women-exclusive trauma program. We also feature experiential therapies such as art therapy, recreational therapy, yoga, and wellness therapy. Based on the work of Stephanie Covington, our trauma-informed yoga style encourages a dialogue between mental health professionals and the women they treat to assist in their development of recovery tools. Trauma yoga places a focus on sensitive topics for women who have a history of trauma, including power, violence, self-soothing, and the mind-body connection.
Our program uses the Gender-Responsive Assessment tool, developed by Stephanie Covington, to evaluate the effectiveness of existing programs in caring for women who are living with a history of trauma. The results from this assessment are used to identify certain areas that mental health professionals should focus on during the therapeutic process.
Supporting continued progress after a woman completes our gender-specific inpatient trauma program in Henderson, NV
After women complete our trauma program and reenter the community, they may benefit from additional care for the effects of trauma. Before each woman is discharged, they will meet with mental health professionals to plan the next step that best suits their recovery needs.
Some women may be a good fit for care at our traditional outpatient center, where they can receive therapy as needed. Others may be better suited for our intensive outpatient program (IOP), where they can receive group therapy and other services several days each week. Another option is our partial hospitalization program (PHP), where women can receive a full day of group therapy and other services five days each week. Each of our programs offers services that can help women manage the effects of trauma while they live in their home environment.
Participating in continued care provides each woman with a personalized treatment program to cope with the effects of PTSD or trauma while they live in the community. Our comprehensive, evidence-based trauma care offers women the help they need to achieve lasting healing.
