Project Term: 12 months; Ended 2016
Grant Amount: $25,000
This planning grant resulted in a collaboration between the Northern Cheyenne Tribe and Saint Vincent Healthcare to establish a collaborative program to provide and coordinate care for pregnant women with substance use disorders. This tribally-led pilot program worked to increase early entry into prenatal care by refining a trusted model of care for prenatal care and integrate supportive services and substance abuse treatment. This work will continue with support from a new MHCF implementation grant.
