Doodys 5-Star Review!

This resource from the American Academy of Pediatrics on caring for children with mental health problems provides information and education that is critical and, frankly lacking in most primary care settings. The computer-based format makes it easy to access and use.
This resource was created to help any primary care provider who works with children or adolescents, including physicians, residents, and nurse practitioners. The toolkit provides a number of useful materials including pamphlets, flow charts, and most importantly, the CD which provides extensive information and resources. Various algorithms are available for use to help providers in not only the assessment of mental health problems but also in helping provide services through protocols and creation of referral databases.

The purpose of the toolkit is to enhance the mental health specialty care provided to children and adolescents. This is an essential resource that was created in response to a critical need. Primary care providers must be capable of recognizing and appropriately managing mental health problems in children and adolescents.
