Children with mental health needs are currently not able to access adequate resources. This report from the field describes the ongoing implementation of an integrated behavioral health model in the state of Texas. The Child Psychiatry Access Network (CPAN) leverages primary care providers (PCPs) in the treatment and management of childhood psychiatric disorders. Data are reported as of November 2021 from consultations placed by PCPs over the preceding 17 months. During that time period, following consultation with the CPAN team, over 90% of PCPs were comfortable delivering the recommended mental health care directly to their patients. This suggests that CPAN is a feasible integrated behavioral health approach to address the shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists.
