Efforts supporting integrated care in pediatric primary care are increasing, given that approximately two-thirds of behavioral health concerns can be addressed in this setting when pediatricians have the proper tools and support. This session explores integrated care through the Behavioral Health Integration and Guidance Initiative. Attendees will learn about the opportunities integrated care affords pediatricians, healthcare systems, and children with mental health needs.
