What is an MLP?

The Health, Education and Legal assistance Project: A Medical-Legal Partnership (HELP: MLP) works collaboratively with health care partners to identify and address unmet legal needs for expecting mothers, and those with young children, in order to reduce stress and improve health outcomes for both.

A recognized, national leader in the medical-legal partnerships movement, HELP: MLP is also available to train organizations interested in establishing their own medical-legal partnerships.
