From my Academy:
The AAP and the AACAP would like to announce the release of Improving Mental Health Services in Primary Care: Reducing the Administrative and Financial Barriers to Access and Collaboration. This article should be helpful to advocacy efforts at the local, regional, and national levels. This paper was supported though the Improving Mental Health in Primary Care Through Access, Collaboration, and Training (IMPACT) grant to the AAP from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Please click here to learn more about the effort, and here to read the paper.
Also, those of you who missed the Healthy Child Care Consultant Network Support Center (NSC) webinar Integrating Mental Health and Child Care Health Consultation on March 24th can now find it archived in the NSC website's resources. Following an introduction by Dr. Phyllis Stubbs-Wynn, state leaders from Illinois and Oregon shared their expertise and experience, and answered questions from participant Watch and listen to the webinar or download the PowerPoint slides and other resources that accompanied the event, including resources from Oregon's CCHC program. And remember to visit the website often to check for new resources and other information about CCHC initiatives across the country!
