Programmatic funds to expand Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) services to specifically address perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. NFP is an evidence-based nurse home visitation program for low-income, first-time mothers. NFP nurses at Guilford Child Development (GCD) have all received Mental Health First Aid training to intervene in acute cases, but GCD plans to take a more sustainable approach to treating these issues by engaging a licensed professional counselor to attend initial home visits with the nurses to make the transition to mental health services smoother in cases where a need is identified. Funds will support a portion of the director’s time, supplies, supervision of counseling interns, and training.
