'Mini-grant' funds COMMHAT training program
COMMHAT has received a "mini-grant" from the Maryland Consortium for Children with Special Health Care Needs to develop training for primary care providers and others who provide front-line child mental health services in western Maryland. Led by the Maryland AAP's Committee on Emotional Health, the training will take place in two weekend sessions in the spring 2011. The training also provides an opportunity to test potential "common elements" modules. These modules may be combined with other interventions in training programs to support primary care providers' efforts to identify and treat child mental health problems.
