Perinatal Substance Abuse in Southwest Montana: An Integrated Model
Bozeman Health will support pregnant women with behavioral health issues by expanding and strengthening The Meadowlark Initiative model of care in its Women’s Specialty Clinic. The Meadowlark Initiative provides routine screening in prenatal care for mental health issues and substance use disorders and prompt access to treatment and additional community support if needed. Building on a previous grant, this project will focus on implementing collaborative care and building partnerships with community organizations that serve pregnant women and families. Grant funds will support staff salaries and a consultant who will help Bozeman Health implement the Meadowlark Initiative model of care. Community and organization partnerships will be developed throughout the course of the project.
