What's Pediatric Meltdown about?

Tune in to Pediatric Meltdown and listen to experts provide insights and strategies on a wide variety of behavioral health and mental topics anytime and anywhere that fits your busy schedule. Guests include published researches, primary care colleagues, therapists, educators, parents and even patients. Caring for children and teens with major meltdowns, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, school struggles to name a few along with a myriad long list of behavioral and mental health concerns is daunting and most of us did not receive formal training in residency to prepare us to meet this need. Access to child psychiatry nationally is limited and in some regions just not available at all and as a result we must often provide what can only be called psychiatric care for our pediatric patients. In an effort to increase our understanding of behavioral and mental health assessment and treatment, we attend conferences, read articles, and participate in webinars. You can now add Pediatric Meltdown; the podcast dedicated to children's emotional well-being. Providing behavioral health care at its best is collaborative and connecting with others across disciplines enriches and enhances the care we provide. In the words of Maya Angelou "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." Let's do better together!
