As part of the Federal Government’s Emerging Priorities Grant Opportunity, the AAPCH, Parenting Research Centre (PRC) & the University of New South Wales (UNSW) will be funded $9.44 million over four years for its National Perinatal and Infant Mental Health – Connect and Care Program. Karitane will be the lead agency in this Australian-first nationally coordinated triage service to improve mental health support for parents and a simplified referral system for health professionals. The PIMH Connect and Care project will provide a national triage and referral system for parents experiencing moderate to severe perinatal mental health concerns, and help these families navigate the mental health system.
