The CCECC works with medical practices and screening partners across Chaffee County to ensure ensure all Chaffee children receive timely developmental screenings and appropriate referral and follow-through when additional services are indicated.

The program also utilizes best practices to increase the number of women receiving standardized screenings at physician offices and local access to effective support and treatment options. This program works to raise awareness of the prevalence and impact of Peri-natal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs).
