Collaborative Care Program

Our Collaborative Care program screens and, when appropriate, offers treatment for common behavioral and psychiatric problems,
such as anxiety and depression, that are often overlooked. This program will be available to all children 12 and older. Meet our medical team>

To evaluate issues related to emotional health along with physical health,
the medical team at Madison Pediatrics partner with pediatric mental health
experts using the Collaborative Care Model. Collaborative care programs
have been started at cutting edge medical centers and pediatric practices
throughout the United States with successful results, including decreased
anxiety and depression in adolescents and a greater sense of satisfaction
from patients about the medical care received by their pediatrician.

Our program includes:

  • Screening at annual well visits to identify depression, anxiety and substance use
  • Adolescent and parent education regarding mental health concerns
  • Delivery of evidence-based treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, in the primary care environment by a collaborative care clinician
  • Safety assessments to reduce risk of self-harm
  • Care management by a collaborative care clinician
  • Weekly supervision of an adolescent’s treatment by a care team, which includes a child psychiatrist
  • Increased level of care for adolescents who are not improving
  • Relapse prevention planning to help adolescents stay well
  • A team approach that includes care coordination between the pediatrician, psychiatrist, clinician, adolescent and parents

Madison Pediatrics sees patients at Morristown Medical Center. They are affiliated with Atlantic Medical Group, and are participating providers of Atlantic Accountable Care Organization.
