Region-wide program to identify and coordinate care for low-income, uninsured, and immigrant adults with depression and anxiety
The Foundation's Local Initiative Funding Partners Program is a matching grants program designed to establish partnerships between the Foundation and local grantmakers in support of innovative, community-based projects that improve health and health care for underserved and vulnerable populations.This grant provides support for four primary care health centers collaborating to provide depression screening and care for the uninsured and emerging immigrant population on Cape Cod. Modeling how separate organizations can work well together, these clinics aim to integrate primary and mental health care and to better address high rates of alcoholism in the area. Adults and teens will complete an assessment survey at each site to identify patients who would benefit from a referral for mental health services. The purpose of this project is to increase capacity by developing a volunteer network of psychologists and social workers and will work to reduce stigma associated with anxiety and depression. The funding partners are: Cape Cod Healthcare; Kelley Foundation; Cape and Islands United Way; Community Foundation of Cape Cod; Doreen Belizekian Family Foundation; and Barnstable County.
