Projects, Programs, and Grant Initiatives

Healthy People 2020

Dr. Madeline Joseph and Dr. Elise Fallucco are leading this project with a goal of increasing the proportion of PCP office visits where youth aged 12 to 18 years are screened for depression and increasing the proportion of children with mental health problems who receive treatment. The project offers an on-demand two-part training for PCPs using an evidence-based, specialized program that incorporates simulated clinical encounters with adolescent actors. The training is now available and is free to all providers!



Patient Centered Medical Home Transition

Through the Pediatric Council, FCAAP continues to provide the Patient Centered Medical Home Transition Program to its members a no cost, providing resources to help FCAAP members achieve PCMH recognition.
