What you need to know

The Wilderman Fund for Maternal Mental Health recently hosted its inaugural event at the Alpine Country Club to benefit and introduce The Wilderman Center for Maternal Mental Health at Hackensack University Medical Center.

The center aims to be a place where all women and families, regardless of circumstance, will have access to the best, comprehensive perinatal mental health care possible.

More information about The Wilderman Fund

The Wilderman Fund was founded by Aurielle S. Wilderman, and her husband Michael J. Wilderman, M.D., FACHE, director of Endovascular Surgery, Hackensack University Medical Center, as a response to the scarcity of perinatal mental health care she personally experienced when suffering from extreme illness that nearly cost her life.

L-R: Mark D. Schlesinger, M.D., chair, Anesthesiology, Hackensack University Medical Center; Aurielle S. Wilderman; Michael J. Wilderman, M.D., FACHE, director of Endovascular Surgery, Hackensack University Medical Center; Ihor S. Sawczuk, M.D., regional president, northern market and chief research officer, Hackensack Meridian Health; and Thomas Salazar, M.D., chief, Nephrology Division and co-president of Medical and Dental Staff, Hackensack University Medical Center.

Proceeds from the event will support patient care at the center – the first of its kind in the northern New Jersey region, and one of only a few in the nation.
