Pediatric mental health training and award now available!

The REACH Institute is now offering a pediatric mental health training award to eligible nonprofit health care institutions and/or federally qualified health centers; and, in Atlanta, a free mental health training course. For details, read on!

Pediatric Mental Health Training Award:

The REACH Institute is pleased to announce the Pediatric Mental Health Training Award! This honor will be given to a non-profit organization and/or federally qualified health center that serves culturally diverse, underserved families in low-income communities. The award will fund all costs typically associated with REACH’s flagship Patient-Centered Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care (PPP) program (for which AMA PRA Category 1 credits are available) for up to 50 pediatric primary care providers. In addition to the PPP Program, organizations can opt for the award to also fund the costs associated with one or more of REACH’s other training programs, for mental health clinicians, educators and/or family peer advocates. The pediatric mental health crisis affects everyone, but especially impacts under-resourced communities. By offering this Award, REACH hopes that these newly trained professionals will feel empowered to diagnose and support the children and families they serve.

Atlanta Pediatric PCP Mental Health Training Opportunity:

The REACH Institute is pleased to offer FREE children’s mental health training to pediatric primary care providers in the Greater-Atlanta area. Thanks to a generous donation, up to 150 pediatric PCPs will be awarded complimentary registration to REACH’s flagship Patient-Centered Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care (PPP) training course. This program teaches clinicians to diagnose and treat common mental health conditions they see every day in practice, including ADHD, anxiety, depression, oppositional and conduct disorders. Participants leave the training with tools they can use immediately. Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. To be considered, applicants must be a pediatrician, family physician, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant practicing in the greater Atlanta area. We encourage candidates of all backgrounds and life experiences to apply. For more information, please visit: https://thereachinstitute.research.net/r/RQVCLHS
