MomsFirst and the Cleveland Regional Perinatal Network (CRPN) partnered years ago to assist pregnant and postpartum women with screening and referral for perinatal depression. The linkages made for participants by their MomsFirst Community Health Workers through a carepath developed by CRPN are crucial to accessing needed counseling services.
