How does CPAN work?
The Child Psychiatry Access Network is a FREE, statewide program providing three services in one phone call for all primary care clinicians in Texas who see children under the age of 23.
CPAN provides PCPs with:
- Assistance in finding better referrals for families searching for mental health care in their areas accounting for their location, type of insurance and the length of the waitlist to receive services.
- Guidance in developing behavior plans for common emotional and mental health problems such as bedtime challenges, school refusals and kids struggling to manage emotions or behaviors
- Consultations with a child psychiatrist within 30 minutes of their call to help with any mental health question including those about assessment, diagnosis, and implementation of treatments plans including psychopharmacology
When you call us at 1 (888) 901-CPAN (2726), one of our licensed behavior health specialists will triage your need and determine the route(s) for you. If you need a consultation with a psychiatrist, one of our doctors will call you back within 30 minutes or at your preferred time. As needed, our behavioral health specialists will send you a list of referral options within 24 hours.
