Resources for Support and Information
MHANYS CarePath™ Program assists individuals and their families or identified supporters in developing a comprehensive strategy called a CarePath™. This innovative program strengthens the overall health and well-being of individuals and their families’ transition from any type of treatment setting or families simply interested in achieving better overall health and a sense of well-being. The CarePath™ supports healthy reconnections amongst family, friends, and within the community, be it – job, school, or other associations. CarePath™ participants come to understand their health and well-being is not in isolation of each other.

Project TEACH: Connecting Primary Care with Child Psychiatry
Primary care physicians (PCPs) such as pediatricians and family practice doctors are often the first place families go to seek help or information about emotional or behavioral concerns with their children. PCPs provide mental health support and can prescribe medications, but they may not have access to consultation or the training needed to make decisions for children with mental health needs.
Project TEACH provides rapid consultation, education and training, and referral/ linkage services to pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) statewide who provide care for children and adolescents with mental health disorders. Additionally, other prescribers who are providing ongoing treatment to children, such as Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, General Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, may request a second opinion through consultation.
Parents and families are encouraged to share information about Project TEACH with their pediatrician and/or PCPs.
Project TEACH also provides mental health resources for families and caregivers, including videos and printable materials, on topics such as mental health problems common among school-aged children, teens and young adults. These can be found under the Resources tab at “Parent and Family Page“.
