Need help providing care to your pediatric patients with mental health concerns?
Enroll in ACCESS Mental Health and you can call specialists for answers to your questions and access valuable resources for your patients.

As the news surrounding COVID-19 unfolds, we want to remind everyone that ACCESS MH is here to provide support and guidance to the pediatric community during this time. Our phone consultation line continues to take calls for peer-to-peer consultation and will continue to do so without disruption.  We will monitor what is happening in our communities across the state. Like you, we are uncertain what will stay open during this time. However, we will continue to provide community resources for your patients to the best of our ability.

Due to social distancing, our one time face-to-face consultations are shifting to a telehealth platform. Our psychiatry teams know how valuable these one-time visits can be for you and your patients and are committed to making this transition as easy and as smooth as possible. Our child and adolescent psychiatrists will continue to give guidance to you and your patients over the phone if a face-to-face or telehealth visit is not possible. 

ACCESS MH is dedicated to support you and the families you serve. We understand that COVID-19 can affect family’s mental health as well as physical health and we will continue to support your pediatric communities during this difficult time. Our phone lines are open Monday- Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Stay safe.
