COLLABORATIVE ON HEALTHY
PARENTING IN PRIMARY CARE

The Collaborative on Healthy Parenting in Primary Care recognizes the accumulated evidence of the effectiveness of family-focused prevention programs that promote the physical and behavioral health and emotional well-being of children from before their birth through adolescence. Members of the Collaborative have united around an initiative to support the integration of effective programs that promote healthy parenting into primary care settings in order to achieve optimal health for children.
 
Specifically, the Collaborative aims to:
• increase the research evidence testing the effectiveness of family-focused preventive interventions in primary care settings 
• increase public awareness and strengthen political will for this initiative
• increase the acceptance of these preventive interventions for behavioral health problems in primary care settings by health care professionals
• identify and develop sustainable funding mechanisms to cover the costs of these services
