Treating Moms Well Luncheon

Healthcare Alternative Systems, Inc. has been a leading nonprofit provider of English and Spanish behavioral health care in the Chicago area since 1974.  Each year, services are provided to some 8,000 individuals and families in Chicagoland, regardless of the ability to pay. HAS provides a continuum of substance abuse service for men, women and youth; domestic violence services for survivors and perpetrators; and testing, counseling, education and residential services for HIV/AIDS.  Has also offers the only community-based postpartum depression (PPD) program in the state of Illinois.  We are proud to announce our fourth annual Treating Moms Well luncheon, which will support postpartum depression treatment.

H.A.S is the number one behavioral health care provider among Spanish-speaking individuals throughout the Chicago area.  HAS specializes in providing programs and services to the Spanish-speaking community; our programs are culturally-sensitive and available in both Spanish and English.  Our PPD program is the only one of its kind available to Spanish-speaking women in the state of Illinois.

On Friday, May 6th, Healthcare Alternative Systems, Inc. will host its 4th Annual Treating Moms Well Luncheon in support of its Postpartum Depression program.  Proceeds from this event will be used to raise awareness and provide postpartum depression services to women with very limited financial resources. Services include clinical evaluations, individual and family psychotherapy, group therapy, psychiatric evaluations, medication and case management.

Ms. Ana Belaval from WGN Morning News will be acting as mistress of ceremonies, and Ms. Joan Mudd, founder of the Jennifer Mudd Houghtaling Postpartum Depression Foundation, will serve as keynote speaker.  Ms. Mudd’s efforts have aided tremendously in raising awareness and developing postpartum depression services within the medical community.
