Supporting Pediatricians and Primary Care Providers in Texas

The Child Psychiatry Access Network (CPAN) is a statewide initiative, funded by the Texas legislature, to address the mental health needs of Texas children and adolescents. CPAN is a free network of child psychiatry access centers, staffed by child psychiatrists and other licensed mental health professionals to assist primary care providers with child mental health concerns.

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center is one of the state’s 12 regional CPAN hubs. CPAN offers pediatricians and primary care providers live telephone case consultation, resource information, and training opportunities to assist with immediate care concerns at no cost. Meet the team.
