Cooperative agreements to USA government agencies, tribes, and tribal organizations for telehealth programs for pediatric behavioral health care. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to promote mental health integration into pediatric primary care.

State or regional networks of pediatric mental health care teams will provide teleconsultation, training, technical assistance, and care coordination for pediatric primary care providers to diagnose, treat, and refer children with behavioral health conditions. Successful recipients will focus on achieving health equity related to racial, ethnic, and geographic disparities in access to care, especially in rural (including frontier and hard-to-reach) and other underserved areas. PMHCA advances HRSA strategic plan goals to improve access to quality health services, foster a health care workforce able to address current and emerging needs, achieve health equity, and enhance population health.

For the purposes of this funding opportunity, a pediatric mental health care telehealth access program for which funding may be used, shall—

A. Be a statewide or regional network of pediatric mental health care teams that provide support to pediatric primary care sites as an integrated team;

B. Support and further develop organized state or regional networks of pediatric mental health care teams to provide consultative support to pediatric primary care sites;

C. Conduct an assessment of critical behavioral consultation needs among pediatric providers and such providers’ preferred mechanisms for receiving consultation, training, and technical assistance;

D. Develop an online database and communication mechanism, including telehealth, to facilitate consultation support to pediatric primary care practices;

E. Provide rapid statewide or regional clinical telephone or telehealth consultations when requested between the pediatric mental health care teams and pediatric primary care providers;

F. Conduct training and provide technical assistance to pediatric primary care providers to support the early identification, diagnosis, treatment, and referral of children with behavioral health conditions;

G. Provide information to pediatric providers and assist pediatric providers in accessing pediatric mental health care providers, including child and adolescent psychiatrists, developmental behavioral pediatricians, and licensed mental health professionals, such as psychologists, social workers, or mental health counselors and in scheduling and conducting technical assistance;

H. Assist with referrals to specialty care and community or behavioral health resources; and

I. Establish mechanisms for measuring and monitoring increased access to pediatric mental health care services by pediatric primary care providers and expanded capacity of pediatric primary care providers to identify, treat, and refer children with mental health conditions.

This program will serve as a resource for pediatric primary care providers serving children and adolescents, including, but not limited to, pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and care coordinators. The programs are encouraged to broaden the reach to additional providers such as physician specialists (e.g., developmental-behavioral pediatricians, obstetrician-gynecologists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists), behavioral health clinicians, and social workers.
