According to the National Survey of Children’s Health, more than 1 in 5 (22.1%) U.S. children have 1 or more mental, emotional, developmental, or behavioral problems. @VMAPVA is working to ensure that more children have access to providers who are better able to screen, diagnose, manage, and treat mental health. www.VMAP.org
Mental health is an important part of overall health for children. For many adults who have mental disorders, symptoms were present—but often not recognized or addressed—in childhood and adolescence. VMAP is here to support primary care providers and their pediatric patients who are struggling with their mental health. https://vmap.org/about-us/
It can be challenging for many families to get mental health care for their children, especially with the mental health provider shortage in Virginia and nationwide. @VMAPVA provides regional consultation with child and adolescent psychiatrists and other licensed behavioral health providers for primary care providers treating children and adolescents in Virginia, so providers can get support for their patients in the moment. https://vmap.org/call-vmap/
Many parents go to their child’s pediatrician or PCP when a child is struggling with their #MentalHealth. @VMAPVA provides education and training to these PCPs, so they are better equipped and prepared when their patients come in with mental health concerns or needs. #MentalHealthMonth https://vmap.org/education/
