Last May, the Texas Child Psychiatry Access Network (CPAN), a network of child psychiatry access centers at 11 regional hubs that provide child and adolescent behavioral health consultation services and training opportunities for pediatricians and PCPs, launched statewide.

The North/Northeast Regional CPAN Hub is run through Children’s Health℠ and UT Southwestern. As a member of CPAN, you are linked to a Children’s Health/UT Southwestern CPAN team member should you ever have a young patient in your office with a behavioral or mental health concern.

This peer-learning approach reduces the mental healthcare access gap created by the shortage of child psychiatrists.

Other Benefits

  • CPAN is a free service for PCPs and pediatricians

  • You can receive psychiatric consultations with a child psychiatrist and mental health professional

  • Training opportunities for PCP’s and pediatricians to improve the care of children and adolescents with behavioral health needs

  • Facilitated referrals to reliable mental health providers in your community
