Grant Description
Grants to Minnesota healthcare clinics for workforce development and training programs that benefit children with behavioral health issues. Funding is intended to develop pediatric mental health training programs in outpatient primary care clinics. The goal of the training program is to improve skills and increase awareness of mental health resources among pediatric primary care providers caring for the mental health needs of pediatric patients. Partnerships between training programs and community resources are required.

An overarching goal of this grant program is that pediatric patients served by participating outpatient primary care clinics will receive more effective, timely, longitudinal care for mental health needs. Collaboration between higher education institutions and outpatient primary care clinics is highly encouraged. 

Programs will:

  • Focus on the training of pediatric primary care providers working with multidisciplinary mental health teams,
  • Provide training on conducting comprehensive clinical mental health assessments and potential pharmacological therapy,
  • Provide psychiatric consultation to pediatric primary care providers during their outpatient pediatric primary care experiences,
  • Emphasize longitudinal care for patients with behavioral health needs, and
  • Develop partnerships with community resources.

Trainees of the grantees’ programs may include, for example:

  • Residents in Pediatrics, Family Medicine, or other primary care fields serving pediatric patients,
  • Nurse practitioners in training,
  • Physician assistants in training, and
  • Already practicing physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants providing pediatric primary care.
