Description

Postpartum Depression (PPD) is mood disorder that afflicts approximately 15-20 percent of new mothers following the birth of a child. PPD is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and anxiety, and may also compromise crucial bonding and attachment between mother and baby. Although PPD impacts countless families and takes several lives every year, it is a highly treatable condition that responds well to therapy.

HAS offers the only community-based Postpartum Depression treatment program in the state of Illinois. The program provides clinical evaluations, individual and family therapy, support groups, psychiatric evaluation, medication monitoring, health education, and case management to women experiencing, or at risk for developing, PPD.

HAS staff also provide workshops on PPD for case managers/case workers, counselors, nurses, midwives, and other health professionals.

Staff can help new mothers access needed resources and address other concerns, such as domestic violence and substance abuse, as well.
