Cigna Foundation Grant to Childhaven Promotes Integration of Primary and Behavioral Health Care for Children Ages Zero to Five
The Cigna Foundation has granted $50,000 to Childhaven to promote the integration of primary and behavioral health care for children ages zero to five. The funding will enable Childhaven to implement a screening tool with Bright Steps and Swedish Pediatrics to identify and refer young children who may need mental and behavioral health care due to trauma and other factors. The Cigna Foundation grant also supports a “family navigator” who works with families and their pediatricians to assess progress and determine next steps.
Childhaven CEO Jon Botten, Program Director Megan Beers and Director of Philanthropy Kristi Nelson meet with Ryan Kocher, President of Cigna’s Pacific Northwest market and Dr. John Sobeck, Medical Director of Cigna’s Pacific Northwest market to discuss the $50,000 grant from the Cigna Foundation to Childhaven.
