What is CPCP?
The Charles E. Kubly Access project, was started in 2012 with the generous philanthropic support of Dr. Michael and Mrs. Billie Kubly. The project honors the Kublys' late son, Charlie.
Jon Lehrmann, MD, and Robert Chayer, MD, in partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), started the Charles E. Kubly Access Program as a pilot program to address the significant shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists in the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Due to the success of the pilot program, continued support by the Kubly's, and increased community support throughout the state, the State of Wisconsin passed legislation Act 127 to fund CPCP. Funding from the Department of Health Services (DHS) was granted for additional expansion for coverage of the rural Northern Region of the state. This expanded project in partnership with the Medical College of Wisconsin and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in collaboration with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), is known under the umbrella term of Wisconsin Child Psychiatry Consultation Program (CPCP).
The program components:
- Availability of daily case consultation through email or phone call with a child psychiatrist, psychologist, program coordinators: Mondays-Fridays 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., excluding holidays
- Mental health education for primary care providers
- Ensure a referral support system for pediatric patients to other mental health professionals and community resources

“We are all familiar with the shortage of pediatric psychiatrists available to treat our patients. Mental health and behavioral problems continue to increase in our patients, however. Working with the CPCP allows for a preliminary plan to be put in place for the family while awaiting further evaluation by a psychiatrist if needed”.
