Far West Center offers help for new moms

Happy Mother’s Day from Far West Center! It is a day to celebrate the joy and happiness of a mom’s role in family life.

Far West Center in Westlake is proud to celebrate over 15 years of offering Help for Mom, a mental health program for new moms experiencing postpartum depression. We help new mothers cope with their own reactions, fears and anxieties in caring for a newborn life. For many mothers, the “baby blues” are temporary moments of stress and sadness, but for the new mother with postpartum depression, the emotional struggle is severe and overwhelming. “This is not what I expected” is often the call for help from these moms.

“We are proud to have helped hundreds of new moms over the years to achieve their best level of health and well-being – for themselves, the new infant and the family unit,” said Kelly Dylag, president/CEO of Far West Center. The Help for Mom program combines assessment, counseling, psychiatric care and group support for women at risk for postpartum depression. There is hope and recovery through the program, so that each Mother’s Day to come is a true celebration of health and happiness.
