Presented by the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics
Half of all lifetime mental health illnesses begin by age 14. Primary care clinicians are the front line of support for these concerns in children and youth. The “Mental Health in the Pediatric Medical Home” conference will increase provider capacity to support the mental and behavioral health needs of children, adolescents, and their families. Topics will support PCPs role in assessment, diagnosis, treatment – including psychopharmacology – and management of mild to moderate cases. Download an informational flyer here.
