Pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) are increasingly in the position of managing the mental health care concerns of their patients, due to several factors. The mental health needs of children and adolescents are recognized now more than ever, and have been exacerbated by recent global stressors. PCPs are often the first point of contact for children and families struggling with mental health concerns. Additionally, the AAP and other organizations have made recommendations regarding PCPs role in mental health care.
