Urgent Care & ER

Enrolled providers

The CPCP exists to increase primary care clinicians’ capacity to support behavioral health needs of children, adolescents, and their families in their care.

Consultation

An enrolled primary care provider can request child psychiatric consultation by calling the CPCP telephone line or sending questions through a dedicated email address and expect to receive a response within 30 minutes for phone calls and a one business day response for emails. CPCP child psychiatrists, psychologist, and mental health coordinators are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, to answer questions and provide child psychiatric consultation to primary care clinicians regarding issues such as diagnosis, psychotropic medication management, and targeted behavioral health management, and community resources or referral support. 

Resources

CPCP is here to help: When to request a consultation was created to help outline some circumstances when you may want to consult the CPCP.
