Child Psychiatric Access Network (CPAN)

CPAN is a network of child psychiatry access centers staffed by child psychiatrists who will provide pediatricians and primary care providers with live telephone case consultation as well as training opportunities related to common child mental health concerns.  Our Dept of Psychiatry acts as one of the state’s 12 regional CPAN hubs.

Why enroll in the UTHealth Houston Child Psychiatry Access Network (CPAN)?

  • Children are more likely to first visit with their Primary Care Physician or Pediatrician when they are experiencing a mental health concern.
  • Due to a workforce shortage, there may be a delay before a child or adolescent is seen by a specialist in child psychiatry.
  • The UTHealth Houston Child Psychiatry Access Network (CPAN) takes a peer learning approach to providing care for children and adolescents with mental health concerns.

What can you expect as a participating Provider?
