VMAP Educational Programs
In partnership with the Virginia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, VMAP offers three educational programs to help primary care providers better treat mental health in children and adolescents.
Any provider who treats patients 21 years of age and younger in Virginia is eligible to participate in VMAP’s education opportunities at low to no cost. This includes pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, and PAs, among others.
VMAP Recognition Badge
The digital VMAP Recognition Badge recognizes the completion of one of VMAP’s intensive education programs and is a symbol of both individual and practice commitment to improving pediatric mental health. Each provider who receives the badge has completed a minimum of 20 hours of training.
The VMAP Recognition Badge marks providers’ commitment to improving the lives and wellbeing of children, adolescents, and young adults. VMAP hopes recipients will proudly display the badge on their websites and social media to demonstrate their comprehensive knowledge in pediatric mental health, and their dedication to improving the lives of their patients.
