The Framework is intended as a guiding, unifying document and source to support stakeholders across Colorado to:
- better align work in maternal mental health,
- unite under a shared vision and set of goals,
- enhance impact, and
- build stronger collaborations and advocacy.
The Framework aims to overcome barriers to connecting referrals and services, collecting data to support work, and creating policy change. Additionally, the Framework provides a way to “talk” about perinatal mental health efforts in Colorado and is a tool for orienting organizations, coalitions, and broader spokespeople to these shared objectives.
