Behavior health problems presenting in independent pediatric primary care practices: a survey

Dear colleagues:

The influx of emerging behavioral health problems into independent pediatric primary care practices is a growing problem that can be helped by the introduction of behavioral health consultation and services to support the mission of providers. It is believed that integration of behavioral health services can help to enhance and extend the important health messages and services provided by pediatric primary care providers.

Your responses to this survey will help us better understand the scope of the problem and how adjunctive behavioral health services can be helpful
