Welcome to the Maine Pediatric & Behavioral Health Partnership Program
The Mission of the Maine Pediatric & Behavioral Health Partnership is to educate, support and empower pediatric care providers and their clinical team members through training and ongoing web-based and telephonic patient care consultations with behavioral health providers.
The Maine Pediatric & Behavioral Health Partnership Program is designed to implement a standard of care change for health care providers in Maine to improve access to pediatric behavioral health care. The goal is to maximize the functioning of the current system, not replace it.
Maine Pediatric & Behavioral Health Partnership is available through the enrolled pediatric practices for all children and families, regardless of insurance or financial status. Maine Pediatric & Behavioral Health Partnership services are provided free of charge. The program is funded through a HRSA grant and State of Maine annual matched funds.
To get more information about the program or to enroll, please call 1-833-MPBHP11 (1-833-672-4711).
"The process was a highly efficient and an effective way to increase access to psychiatric care for patients that greatly need it. All the personnel involved were beyond helpful and professional. This program worked seamlessly and look forward to utilizing it again in the future. I cannot express how much this meant for both myself and my patient."
