The American Academy of Pediatrics, California Chapter 1 conducted a mental health survey after our roundtable discussion regarding mental health at the 2017 Annual Meeting in San Jose. It became clear that our members face various difficulties in identifying mental health issues in their patients, hurdles in providing support and giving referrals that result in the patients connecting with a mental health professional. The system in place to provide mental health access is complex and burdensome.
To assist our members, the AAPCA1 compiled a list of mental health links that you may find useful. This receptacle for information will be updated regularly to provide you with the most relevant information pertaining to mental health.
