NEW HRSA Funding Opportunity- Pediatric Mental Health Care Access Program

The purpose of this program is to promote behavioral health integration in pediatric primary care by supporting the development of new or the improvement of existing statewide or regional pediatric mental health care telehealth access programs, thereby facilitating access to and availability of telehealth (including by telephone) psychiatric consultation and care coordination to pediatricians and other pediatric primary care providers. 

The program also will provide training and education on the use of evidence-based, culturally and linguistically appropriate telehealth protocols to support the treatment of children and adolescents with behavioral disorders.  The program will support telehealth consultation with a pediatric behavioral health clinician on the team and referral to a local pediatric behavioral health provider, to the extent possible.

This program will serve as a resource for pediatric primary care providers serving children and adolescents, including, but not limited to, pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychiatrists, mental health professionals, and case coordinators.
