Sounds of Silence 9th Annual Run/Walk – April 29, 2017

I’m late in posting this…nowadays it’s just so easy to lose track of time!

Join the Sounds of Silence, Friends of the Postpartum Resource Center of New York’s 9th annual run/walk in memory and celebration of Lisa Mary Reilly and help raise funds in the effort to increase awareness of perinatal mood disorders, such as postpartum depression (PPD), postpartum OCD, and postpartum psychosis.   Not only is this for an excellent cause, it will be a nice opportunity to race (or walk) a beautiful 5K boardwalk along the Atlantic Ocean.

This annual fundraiser was started back in 2009 by sisters Erin Mascaro and Lisa Reilly. It was Lisa’s experience with PPD after the birth of her daughter–an experience so deeply painful and full of suffering (a suffering that many others like her feel forced to endure in silence) that was witnessed by Erin and other loved ones–that motivated Erin and Lisa to break the silence of PPD with the Sounds of Silence annual run/walk .

Please help spread the word about this fundraiser by blogging or sharing the flyer on Facebook/Twitter.

Upcoming Events in May 2012 – Raising Awareness/Fundraisers for Perinatal Mood Disorders

ILLINOIS:

With Mother’s Day around the corner with May fast approaching, it’s fitting that some states like Illinois observe a Perinatal Mood Disorder Awareness month.  Healthcare Alternative Systems (H.A.S.) is gearing up for its Fifth Annual Treating Moms Well luncheon to raise funds in support of its Postpartum Depression Program.  This year, the luncheon will be at the Standard Club in Chicago on Friday, May 11th 2012. Click here to register. Click here to access the Treating Moms Well Facebook page to participate in a series of contests with fabulous prizes, including a $100 gift certificate to Sweet Pea’s Studio (good for a massage or yoga classes).  Click here to see pictures from last year’s luncheon.

Proceeds from this event will be used to raise awareness and provide postpartum depression (PPD) services to women with limited financial resources.  Services include clinical/psychiatric evaluations, individual and family psychotherapy, group therapy, medication, and case management.

H.A.S. has been a leading non-profit provider of English and Spanish behavioral health care in the Chicago area since 1974.  Additionally, H.A.S. offers the only community-based PPD program–not to mention it’s the only one of its kind available to Spanish-speaking women–in the State of Illinois.
