Date:1/27/2009

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare announced today that it awarded a $7,500 grant to The Center for Black Women's Wellness, Inc. (CBWW) to support Journey to Wellness, a program designed to address the disparity of mental health among black women.

Through education and advocacy, the program uses nontraditional modes such as drama, movie nights with discussion sessions, and tea parties to provide culturally appropriate opportunities for women to address fears associated with accessing mental health services. Women who participate in the program receive support through existing health resources and referrals to community mental health services that are provided on-site by a professional licensed counselor.

"Although mental health is crucial to overall health, its importance is not always recognized, particularly in vulnerable populations," said Kathy Bradley-Wells, president, Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare. "The Journey to Wellness program provided by The Center for Black Women's Wellness is an innovative strategy to address the pressing disparity of mental health in a safe and secure community."
