for Pediatric & School-Based
Clinic Providers

 

recent_239.JPG

Psychiatric consultation is available, via telehealth, for New Mexico providers who do not have a psychiatrist on their team. Intended for health and behavioral health care providers alike, this consultation aims to improve the quality of youth behavioral healthcare by assisting with collaborative assessment, treatment planning, systems-of-care problems, consent and confidentiality issues, and resource/information access. Providers are invited to present case vignettes involving youth seen in their clinic. During case discussions, confidentiality is maintained by de-identification of Protected Health Information, in accordance with HIPAA (age, gender, race/ethnicity, custody, school grade, and clinical features). Providers retain full responsibility for clinical care.
