Pediatric Mental Health Community Resources
Early identification and treatment of children with mental health problems by primary care physicians can reduce disease burden on families and communities. Many primary care physicians want more information on caring for these children. As a follow up to the Pediatric Mental Health Screening Tools training, WiSMHI offers a training titled Pediatric Mental Health Community Resources. Based upon the AAP’s Mental Health Toolkit (2010), this 60-minute session will identify relevant mental health resources in your community. This activity is designated for up to 1.0 hours of participation for CME for physicians.
