Kansas Connecting Communities Free Program and Resources to Support Maternal Mental Health

Kansas Maternal  Child Health Logo (Mar. 8, 2024) – Kansas Connecting Communities is a federally funded behavioral health workforce development program administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. KCC supports health professionals in Kansas in identifying and addressing mental health concerns of individuals during and after pregnancy and was renewed for another five years.

KCC provides a Perinatal Provider Consultation Line for Behavioral Health, a free consultation line available to providers working in or serving patients in Kansas. Through the line, professionals can get practitioner-to-practitioner consultations, resource and referral assistance and access to training, including CE and technical assistance, at no cost. Additionally, through a partnership with Kansas Connecting Communities, the Kansas Chapter of Postpartum Support International is offering training scholarships to Kansas professionals working with perinatal populations or those interested in advancing their expertise in perinatal mental health.

Scholarship funds are available for a predetermined list of training (both self-paced and live). For more information about KCC, check out Kansas Connecting Communities. Regarding the scholarships for training, see FAQs, list of trainings and scholarship application, all linked below:
