The Maternal Mental Health Referral Guidance Tool was developed by the Maternal and Child Health Program at the Public Health Institute at Denver Health to provide guidance to health providers on the maternal mental health screening and referral process, including patient education on the outcome of a screen, key questions to consider when making a referral, and recommended referral practices to assure that the provider stays updated about the patient’s care. The 3-page tool includes a patient-facing “prescription pad” (seen first in this link) to help patients remember referral recommendations.
