American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has developed Strategies for System Change in Children’s Mental Health: A Chapter Action Kit to assist AAP chapters in addressing and improving children’s mental health in primary care in their state. The Chapter Action Kit was updated in 2016 and focuses on the following 6 core action areas that provide strategies for improving children’s mental health programs and services:
Within each core action area, strategies are provided as a starting point for chapter efforts. Most strategies will be accompanied by resources and chapter examples. If your chapter has carried out one of these strategies and would like to be highlighted on the Web site as a model for other chapters, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
