Women’s Integrated Systems for Health (WISH)
The WISH project, funded by HRSA MCH Bureau, was a partnership among the NC Institute for Public Health, the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, MCH Dept., and the UNC Center for Maternal and Infant Health/Every Woman Southeast. The project focused on promoting integrative community approaches to optimizing mental and physical health among adolescents and women of reproductive age. This was a multi-faceted project to build leadership capacity among public health, mental health, substance abuse, violence prevention and primary care in order to develop more holistic and integrated systems of care women. Below please find a 6-Part Series of training modules for this project. The modules may be accessed free of charge below. Prior to reviewing each module, participants will be asked to register with the training site and take a very brief pretest.
