Women on the Move

Liz Bland

Program Manager, Main Line Health's Women’s Emotional Wellness Center

At one time, Liz Bland wanted to be the female George Stephanopoulos—but life intervened. Bland’s stepmother went for a mammogram that rattled her. “She wished I’d gone with her and asked if there was anyone in a hospital who had my personality,” Bland recalls. 

Inspired, Bland went back to school, earning her MSW from Temple University. By 2006, she was a NICU social worker for Main Line Health. Seven years later, the Women’s Emotional Wellness Center opened with Bland in charge. More than 1,000 women have called the center for help with postpartum depression, and it now employs five therapists who handle all sorts of issues. “Our purpose is to help women across their lifespans with whatever challenges they face,” says Bland. “The more challenges we see, the more solutions we’ll find.”
