About Our Program
My son's pediatrician told me of the CPCP services that she was enrolled in and how it worked. She said my son's treatment was outside the scope of her practice but that she could consult with child psychiatrists through this program. I agreed and trusted her. It was a quick turn-around in which my son's pediatrician called me to discuss medication and treatment options. He is currently stable and doing great in school, and he is even excelling in math! I have more respect for my pediatrician for seeking out assistance and using CPCP because we all don't know everything and need help. As the saying goes: It takes a village to raise a child.

The goal of the WI CPCP is to improve mental health care for children and adolescents in the state of Wisconsin. We do this by providing education to the enrolled primary care providers on the diagnosing and management of mild-to-moderate mental health issues. Our team of child psychiatrists, pediatric psychologists, and resource personnel provide timely consultative and resource support. Through this program, Wisconsin’s children can receive care for their mental health concerns within their medical home.
WI CPCP is a part of the National Network of Child Psychiatry Access Programs (NNCPAP) that promotes collaboration and use of best practices within regional and state consultation programs. Through cross-program collaboration, we have ability to identify benefits of programs and address challenges and problems quickly. The network supports the "medical home" model, allowing the majority of care to be provided by the child’s trusted primary care provider. The network encourages the reach of these programs to primary care practices throughout the country.
The Wisconsin CPCP operates Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm CST, excluding federal holidays.
