About the Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Program (MCPAP)
The Massachusetts Child Psychiatry Access Program (MCPAP) is a system of regional children's behavioral health consultation teams designed to help primary care providers and their practices to promote and manage the behavioral health of their pediatric patients as a fundamental component of overall health and wellness. Through consultation and education, MCPAP improves pediatric teams’ competencies in screening, identification, and assessment; treating mild to moderate cases of behavioral health disorders, and in making effective referrals and coordinating the care for patients who need community-based specialty services. Founded in 2004, MCPAP has the widespread support of family advocates, legislators, and pediatric primary care providers and serves over 6,000 children and families across the Commonwealth each year. To date, 38 states, Washington, DC, and British Columbia, struggling with similar and even more severe access issues, have developed child psychiatry consultation programs based on the MCPAP model.
