The 15-Minute Mental Health Visit (June 2008)

The AAP Task Force on Mental Health collaborated with the Committee on Psychosocial Aspects of Child and Family Health, Council on Children with Disabilities, Council on Community Pediatrics, Committee on Practice and Ambulatory Medicine, Section on Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, and Bright Futures to provide a Web-based teleconference for primary care pediatricians focused on educating pediatricians on how to approach mental health concerns with parents, children, and adolescents in the primary care setting.

Speakers Larry Wissow, MD, MPH and Anne Gadomski, MD, MPH discuss the "common factors" approach and present video clips of doctors interviewing simulated patients with mental health problems that are common in the pediatric primary care setting. A panel of experts respond to the video clips and assist in answering participant questions.
