22% of children in the United States have or will have

a mental illness with serious impairment

There is a severe shortage of child psychiatrists in Colorado with only 15 professionals per 100,000 children in the state. Early intervention for pediatric patients with psychiatric disorders drastically improves current and future health outcomes.

In this series, pediatric primary care providers will improve their ability and confidence to accurately determine the diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan for patients presenting with symptoms of mental health conditions.

Pediatric Psychiatry experts will share information on approach, assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and management of these complex health conditions in primary care. In addition, participants will be encouraged to share patient cases and experiences and will receive feedback from reputable child psychiatrists, a clinical social worker and fellow pediatric primary care providers from across Colorado.
