About the Integrated Care Program
The Healthy Minds, Healthy Kids (HMHK) Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) integrates behavioral health providers within primary care teams.
How to obtain services
Discuss your concerns with your child’s doctor or nurse. They will review with you how to get the treatment your child needs.
What do we provide?
CHOP provides behavioral health interventions in collaboration with pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) using evidence-supported brief interventions (up to eight sessions).
If longer-term treatment is necessary, the HMHK provider works with the PCP and the family to support appropriate community-based referrals.
Most common concerns we treat
- Anxiety issues
- Attention difficulties
- Bowel and bladder issues
- Depressive symptoms
- Disruptive behaviors
- Eating Issues (not disorders)
- Traumatic stress symptoms
Is my child eligible to see a HMHK provider?
- Your child must be referred by their primary care provider.
