National Network of Child Psychiatry Access Programs
The Pediatric Psychiatry Collaborative Pilot Program (PPC) is a state funded grant program that partners Meridian Health and Cooper University Health System to provide support for children with behavioral and emotional health issues. The program is available for children up to age 18 and requires the child’s primary care provider (PCP) to universally offer standardized behavioral health screenings at each child’s well visit. Meridian Health & Cooper Health each act as a hub whereby the PCP can make a referral for access to child mental health services. Combined, the hubs are currently serving eleven counties in New Jersey: Monmouth and Ocean (Meridian Hub – Jersey Shore), Middlesex and Mercer (Meridian Hub – Saint Peter’s), Burlington and Camden (Cooper Hub - Camden) and Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem (Cooper Hub – Pennsville).
