COVID-19 Mental Health Toolkit: Supporting Tweens and Adolescents in Crisis

Facilitator Needed – Apply Today!

As kids’ behavioral health crises have steeply increased in the past year, PCPs need guidance on how to effectively support patients in crisis in outpatient settings whenever possible, as the demand for coordination and interim treatment continues to rise.

One of WCAAP’s group member clinics has implemented a crisis management tool for PCPs that has been well received and is helping PCPs in meaningful ways during today’s behavioral health crisis among kids. WCAAP will be adapting and supplementing this tool for use with our members. We will share the crisis management toolkit and support clinics’ ability to implement these strategies via training and support sessions, to provide PCPs the guidance and tools they need for effectively managing patients’ mental health crises.

Request: We are seeking 1-3 pediatric primary care providers to (1) contribute to the development of the “COVID-19 Mental Health toolkit: managing adolescents in crisis”, and (2) lead four training sessions, in partnership with a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.

Timeline: We are aiming to start the toolkit development and writing in June and host the trainings in July and August. We estimate involvement would be approximately 10 hours per month, depending on the number of facilitators.

Compensation: Facilitators will be compensated at $150/hr. via a stipend matching their level of effort and availability.
