Pediatric Mobile Unit
The Mississippi Gulf Coast Children’s Health Project (MGCCHP) was established in response to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The MGCCHP is part of Children’s Health Fund’s Transportation Initiative, which enhances access to transportation to medical appointments for patients living in areas with deficiencies in public transportation.
The MGCCHP utilizes a state-of-the-art mobile health clinic to deliver comprehensive primary and mental health care. Recognizing that mental health care plays a crucial role in the response to any disaster, the project places an emphasis on counseling and community outreach, as well as mental health trainings for health care, education and social workers in the community.
