Statewide Initiatives

To better understand the areas of greatest impact, we have identified and partnered with schools, community organizations, and healthcare systems on initiatives to improve the diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders and enhance suicide prevention efforts. 


The CDRC has created two community networks that provide invaluable partnership in our statewide initiatives:

Mood Disorders Network/ Pediatric Mood Disorders Network

Comprised of clinical and community members to address gaps in the screening, diagnosis, treatment, and management of depression and other mood disorders.

Our projects include:

  • VitalSign6
    • Learn about VitalSign6 and Measurement-Based Care (MBC) here.
  • Cloudbreak Initiative
    • Learn more about our work with the Cloudbreak Initiative here.

Risk and Resilience Network
