Empirical evidence supports the gut feeling that many pediatric providers are noticing – we are experiencing a pediatric mental health crisis. Join the CFHA Pediatric SIG for an engaging and experiential ELO as we boldly chart a course forward. Through didactic, reflective, and small group work, you will learn practical tools and build a personal action plan for implementing the recommendations from the 2021 Surgeon General’s advisory on the youth mental health crisis in your own practice. Leaders in pediatric integrated care will help you build-in strategies to balance implementation of your plan with the collective burnout providers are experiencing.
- Summarize key guidance for healthcare workers from the 2021 Surgeon General’s report on the pediatric mental health crisis.
- In a small group format, access technical assistance from leaders in pediatric integrated care to generate creative and practical solutions to implementing the recommendations from the Surgeon’s General’s report.
- Develop a personal action plan to address the pediatric mental health crisis in the participant’s own setting that also shields against burnout.
