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.
