The COVID-19 pandemic laid bare the lack of accessibility to mental health care across the age continuum in this country. As a result, more primary care practitioners are being asked to develop facility with managing mentally ill patients. Many of those providers have only limited training or knowledge in the area of mental health. Our goal is to provide some additional assistance for how to approach a depressed or anxious child or adolescent, how to identify and manage an in office psychiatric emergency and how to work with patients who suffer from trauma and stressor related disorders.

This program will be recorded and available to registered learners for one month following the live event date.
