Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral

to Treatment (SBIRT) Toolkit

This SBIRT Integration Plan and associated Toolkit has been created through the work of many state and local partners with a shared interest in providing coordinated and comprehensive behavioral health services to women before, during and after pregnancy. This Toolkit is intended to be utilized by Kansas Title V MCH programs and shared with local partnering providers* serving the same populations, in an effort to collaboratively develop an adequate system of care. Information contained in the Toolkit is based on sound research and recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) among others.

*Partnering providers might include: WIC; Title X Family Planning; clinical perinatal care providers; clinical mental health providers; home visitation and case management services; etc.


This Toolkit is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $3,245,698 with no percentage financed with non-governmental sources. The contents are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the official views of, nor an endorsement, by HRSA, HHS, or the U.S. Government. For more information, please visit
