Make a gift. Make an impact.
You can help change the standards for perinatal mental health treatment! Not only will your tax-deductible gift go directly into the current Alexis Joy D'Achille Center for Perinatal Health at West Penn Hospital but it will open up the possibility for more centers in our area (and beyond!)...The need for such centers, and the comprehensive treatments they can provide, is so great that THOUSANDS of women have gone through the program to date and Allegheny Health Network (AHN) has had to triple their Center staff so far. Work with us to increase access to care for mothers!
Any dollar amount goes a long way...From a smaller gift to help offset childcare and transportation costs at the Center to larger gifts that help expand our reach and add more resources; you are joining in #AlexisArmy to help protect moms and their families!
From our partners at AHN: "We believe so strongly in the emotional health of moms that we built a facility dedicated to it - the Alexis Joy D’Achille Center for Perinatal Mental Health. It features a unique intensive outpatient program that treats women struggling with postpartum depression and anxiety with a focus on strengthening the bond between mom and baby. Our program (...) provides support for moms and their families – the first of its kind in western Pennsylvania and one of only a handful in the country."
1 in every 7 moms will experience postpartum depression each year – that’s more than 513,000
Postpartum depression affects more women than breast cancer annually — almost twice as many.
Only 15% of women receive treatment for postpartum depression.
