MDP – Objectives & Methods (3) 3. Engage broad spectrum of human services in planning and service delivery 4. Develop community resource guide on peripartum mood disorder services
MDP – Objectives & Methods (4) 5. l l Develop a protocol to identify children of depressed mothers at risk for developmental problems Screen all children of mothers who scored positive for depression using Brigance Refer all children with concerns on screenings to the Child Developmental Services Agency (CDSA)
MDP – Objectives (5) 6. l l l Collect data on EPDS screenings and referrals of identified mothers Assess process outcomes Secured care outcomes of referrals Longitudinal analysis of scores
Outcomes/Results l l 100% of target population now screened in all WCHS women’s and children’s clinics Protocols in place for: screening, referral, behavioral health consultation and crisis intervention.
Outcomes/Results (2) l l All women with scores above 12 on EPDS referred for full behavioral health assessment & women with scores between 8 -12 receive targeted follow-up and referral for support services and education. All clinic medical staff have received training.
Outcomes/Results (3) l l Advisory committee expanded to include representatives of: health clinics; adult and child behavioral health; crisis mental health services; child welfare; child development; maternal outreach and care coordination; and community health programs. Community outreach subcommittee formed.
Outcomes/Results (4) l l 360 women participated in the Latina mothers’ depression support group – Mamas Apoyando Mamas (9/2006 -2/2008). 589 mothers have received mental health assessment and referral to treatment providers.
Overcoming Barriers l Clinic providers’ lack of understanding of maternal depression. – – – -presentations in clinic staff meetings Invitations to initial workgroup Free continuing education training exclusively for WCHS staff provided on site by UNC’s Perinatal Psychiatry Program.
Overcoming Barriers (2) 2. l l Clinic staff’s reluctance to change (time and patient flow concerns) key staff assisted in pilot projects modeling EPDS folded into the existing practice of other clinic screening protocols
Overcoming Barriers (3) 3. l l Reluctance to identify maternal depression and not have resources for referral. Education, education Identification and introduction of mental health staff with contact numbers and onsite availability in protocols before screening implemented
Overcoming Barriers (4) 4. l l l Willingness to share information between women’s clinic, child health clinic, mental health services, and child welfare. Directly addressing communication issues with leadership. Fostering a sense of shared responsibility and accomplishment of all clinic staff. Ongoing effort!
Overcoming Barriers (5) 5. l l Support – staff and funding Using current clinic and behavioral health program budgets. Requesting full-time bilingual/bicultural LCSW to provide MH services, coordinate program, collect data for outcomes reports, and provide consultation and education within WCHS and community outreach.
Lessons Learned l l Highly collaborative process across programs and staff helps ensure commitment to shared outcomes rather than a single program. Protocols ensure practice continues as part of clinic’s routines.
Lessons Learned (2) l l l Integration of programs under human services department in practice as well as philosophy. Designing the MDP to function without additional staff or resources actual helps assure program continues. Allowing a longer time-frame for implementation helps ensure better communication & collaboration.
