To support the critical role that pediatricians and primary care physicians play in the early identification and access to treatment for emotional disturbances in children, the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) is funding a collaborative effort of State and County governments with medical providers designed to link pediatricians and primary care physicians with child mental health experts across New York State.
Project TEACH (Training and Education for the Advancement of Children’s Health) will provides specialized training, consultation and linkage with mental health treatment for primary care physicians statewide. It is a collaboration of OMH with the Department of Health (DOH), Conference of Local Mental Hygiene Directors, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the New York State Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
