Pediatric Partners of the Southwest


Pediatric Partners, with the assistance of Rocky Mountain Health Plans, has started an Integrated Behavioral Health program within our office. We have 3 Behavioral Health providers who are present in the office Monday-Friday. They will be able to provide targeted intervention for common behavioral and developmental challenges such as potty training, tantrums, or bedtime; they can help with management of chronic medical conditions, including adherence to treatment; assist with parental transitions (post-partum depression, returning to work, divorce); and they will serve in a critical manner to help with the interface of school and community mental health programs with the medical home.
