ADDRESSING MATERNAL CHILD ISSUES

FROM A PUBLIC HEALTH PERSPECTIVE IN NORTHEAST OHIO

The Cleveland Regional Perinatal Network is committed to mounting a broad community response to the issues surrounding maternal, child and adolescent mental health. We drive change through programs designed to educate, train, and build awareness. We link providers to resources and connect women, children and adolescents to valuable community services.

The CRPN provides support to a number of distinct groups, including: healthcare and community providers; individuals suffering from maternal, paternal, childhood and adolescent mental health issues; family members; strategic partners in public health, research and mental health.

Perinatal Depression Project

CRPN is the only organization addressing perinatal depression from a public health perspective in Northeast Ohio. The development of screening tools, training, data tracking system, and a network of perinatal mental health providers resulted in A Blueprint for Community Response.

CRPN’s evidence-based strategy has enabled healthcare and community providers to systematically screen and refer for perinatal depression and enhanced access to mental health services for this population. This effective approach has helped to raise public awareness about the issue and has increased responsiveness to the critical needs of women.

Child & Adolescent Mental Health Project

As part of its broader mission, the CRPN has expanded it’s scope to include the social-emotional needs of children and adolescents. Building on it’s unique Blueprint for a Community Response, additional grant funding was received to address these critical issues and develop an evidence-based approach.

The project will focus on improving linkages between healthcare and community providers and the child-adolescent mental health system; and developing a data tracking system.
