In Kansas, we believe all moms deserve access to the mental and behavioral health supports they need to thrive. Kansas Connecting Communities (KCC) is a five-year collaborative initiative between the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program and several state and local partners. KCC aims to improve the mental health and well-being of pregnant and postpartum women through increased screening, timely assessment, effective referrals and reducing barriers to accessing treatment. KCC is focused on building provider capacity to treat and refer perinatal clients through access to psychiatric consultations, telehealth, peer support referrals, technical assistance and training opportunities.
