Child Study Center Grand Rounds: "Deconstructing Silos: Collaborative Care among Schools, Nurses, and Pediatricians"
Increasing numbers of emotionally dysregulated and otherwise disabled children are presenting to school and pediatric offices. This interferes with learning for all students and leads to increased burnout among educators and clinicians. Many current mental health referral systems are ineffective and unwelcome. The Southern Berkshire Collaborative Care Team is a unique model that coordinates support from healthcare providers, schools, and community agencies to provide more effective referrals and care for these children.
