Most of us will experience anxiety, depression or other mental health issues at some point in our lives. We don’t have to experience this alone. Our team is ready and happy to help you. Whether you are experiencing a rough spot in your life or have had life-long mental health issues, we can help.
Every person is unique, and that is exactly how you will be treated. We treat the whole person and not just the issue they are experiencing. Depending on the severity and type of mental illness you are experiencing the following may be recommended and/or prescribed:
- Lifestyle changes
- Self-care (mindfulness/meditation, yoga, etc.)
- Limiting or quitting drinking alcohol, or other substances
The Northwest Family providers and staff have a close connection with Postpartum Depression, as we lost one of physicians to suicide in July 2021. Dr. Radhika Snyder was a beloved physician, mother, wife, and friend who will be forever missed. NWF providers follow all postpartum mothers closely after deliver of their baby and offer much support and treatment options for postpartum mood disorders.
In honor of Dr. Snyder, Northwest Family Clinics has worked with the PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM SUPPORT of MINNESOTA organization to set up
The Radhika Lal Snyder Postpartum Doula Scholarship Program
“To support the emotional health needs of Minnesota families during the perinatal period, we are pleased to offer a program that provides postpartum doula support for families in need with in-home support for free to the family. We hole that in-home postpartum doula support will help prevent future families from having to the face the pain of loss that can result from untreated perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.”
In memoriam: Dr. Radhika Lal Snyder, MD
What is a postpartum doula: A postpartum doula gives you physical and emotional support after the birth of your baby. Most postpartum doulas provide service for a family anywhere from a few days up to several weeks after bringing home a new baby.
Please visit ppsupportmn.org for more information if you or someone you know needs postpartum support. There, you will find their HELPLINE: 612-787-7776, which is the first step to receive information about getting support from a postpartum doula.
There is also information on how you can donate and give your support to keep the postpartum doula program going.
