BEACON Building Mental Wellness Learning Collaborative
The BEACON Building Mental Wellness Learning Collaborative project is designed to improve the delivery of children’s mental health services, including anticipatory guidance, screening, early diagnosis and management of social-emotional problems in primary care, and integrating resources from the Pediatric Psychiatry Network (PPN).
The goal of the learning collaborative is to integrate the science of child and adolescent brain development and the science of adverse childhood experiences into a model for promoting healthy social and emotional development and mental health in two developmental stages of childhood:
1. Birth to age 6, and
2. Ages 7 to 18.
In year one of this project, 4-8 practices will be selected to participate in the pilot and in year two, and additional 12-24 practices will participate.
This project is funded by the Ohio Office of Medical Assistance (OMA) and the Ohio Department of Health. For more information on the Request for Applications for the project, please visit our Funding Opportunities section at the following link: http://grc.osu.edu/closedfunding/
