Behavioral Health

Assessing and treating behavioral health issues is an important part of pediatric medicine today. Whether we are seeing a child having focus issues at school, anxiety or depression, or a teen engaging in risky behaviors, it is important to address these issues before they can have an effect on the child’s overall health. We identify these patients through parents/patients reaching out with concerns and through standardized routine screenings such as the RAAPS questionnaire that is given to all of our 11-22 year old patients.

RPA has a registered nurse in both offices working as our Behavioral Health Coordinator. These nurses help with pre-visit planning for consults with our physicians by talking with parents/patients about their concerns, having the appropriate screening tools completed and arranging an appointment. They also serve as liaisons between our practice and outside providers by assisting our patients with getting appropriate resources in the community (such as counselors, school navigators or treatment centers).

If you are having a non-emergent behavior concern, please contact our office today.
