In the interim, the AAP recognizes that although the proposed competencies are necessary to meet the needs of children, pediatricians will necessarily achieve them through incremental steps that rely on improved third-party payment for their mental health services and access to expertise in mental health coding and billing to support the time required for mental health practice. Necessary clinical skills are summarized in Table 4. Both general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists will benefit from these collaborative skills.

The pediatric process for identifying and managing mental health problems is similar to the iterative process of caring for a child with fever and no focal findings: the clinician’s initial assessment of the febrile child’s severity of illness determines if there is a serious problem that urgently requires further diagnostic evaluation and treatment; if not, the clinician advises the family on symptomatic care and watchful waiting and advises the family to return for further assessment if symptoms persist or worsen.

Although formal evaluation of these adaptations is in its early stages, authors of studies suggest that they can be readily learned by pediatric clinicians and are beneficial to the child and family.37 Table 1 is used to excerpt several of these adaptations from a summary by Wissow et al.37, Promising Adaptations of Mental Health Treatment for Primary Care. When social risk factors are identified (eg, maternal depression, poverty, food insecurity), the pediatrician’s role is to connect the family to needed resources. Consequently, pediatric mental health competencies for the care of this age group involve overcoming any barriers to referral, guiding the family in nurturing and stimulating the child, counseling on parenting and behavioral management techniques, referring for diagnostic assessment and dyadic (attachment-focused) therapy as indicated, and comanaging care.

Enhancements in pediatric mental health practice will also depend on system changes, new methods of financing, access to reliable sources of information about existing evidence and new science, decision support, and innovative educational methods (discussed in the accompanying technical report31). A federal parity law has required that insurers cover mental health and physical health conditions equivalently.19,20 Researchers have shown that early positive and adverse environmental influences—caregivers’ protective and nurturing relationships with the child, social determinants of health, traumatic experiences (ecology), and genetic influences (biology)—interact to affect learning capacities, adaptive behaviors, lifelong physical and mental health, and adult productivity, and pediatricians have a role to play in addressing chronic stress and adverse early childhood experiences.21–24 Transformative changes in the health care delivery system—payment for value, system- and practice-level integration of mental health and medical services, crossdiscipline accountability for outcomes, and the increasing importance of the family- and patient-centered medical home—all have the potential to influence mental health care delivery.25–27 Furthermore, improving training and competence in mental health care for future pediatricians—pediatric subspecialists as well as primary care pediatricians—has become a national priority of the American Board of Pediatrics28,29 and the Association of Pediatric Program Directors.30, In this statement, we (1) discuss the unique aspects of the pediatrician’s role in mental health care; (2) articulate competencies needed by the pediatrician to promote healthy social-emotional development, identify risks and emerging symptoms, prevent or mitigate impairment from mental health symptoms, and address the mental health and substance use conditions prevalent among children and adolescents in the United States; and (3) recommend achievable next steps toward enhancing mental health practice to support pediatricians in providing mental health care.

Once a pediatrician has identified a child or adolescent with 1 or more of these manifestations of a possible mental health condition (collectively termed “mental health concerns” in this statement, indicating that they are undifferentiated as to disorder, problem, or normal variation), the pediatrician needs skills to differentiate normal variations from problems from disorders and to diagnose, at a minimum, conditions for which evidence-based primary care assessment and treatment guidance exists—currently ADHD,71 depression,72,73 and substance use.74 Pediatricians also need knowledge and skills to diagnose anxiety disorders, which are among the most common disorders of childhood, often accompany and adversely affect the care of chronic medical conditions, and when associated with no more than mild to moderate impairment, are often amenable to pediatric treatment.66 A number of disorder-specific rating scales and functional assessment tools are applicable to use in pediatrics, both to assist in diagnosis and to monitor the response to interventions; these have been described and referenced in the document “Mental Health Tools for Pediatrics” at www.aap.org/mentalhealth. as infant mental health,1 and to clarify the difference between IECMHC and other types of services offered that support infants, young children, and families.
