LANCASTER – Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health received two state grants totaling $750,000 to combat substance-use-disorder and mental-health challenges in women and prevent potential negative impacts on their children. LG Health’s Pregnancy Support Services Program received $600,000 to provide support services for pregnant and post-partum women with opioid-use disorder. The program is expected to serve 80 to 100 patients each year, providing services to women with any substance use disorder from pregnancy until a child’s first birthday. Their Moving Beyond Depression Program received $150,000 to prevent child abuse and neglect by addressing the mental-health needs of mothers who are experiencing depression and anxiety. The program serves first-time, low-income mothers who are enrolled in LG Health’s Nurse-Family Partnership home-visitation program. The grant funding will help to enable access to mental-health treatment and support, as well as related community resources for mothers and their children.
