Project TEACH (Training and Education for the Advancement of Children’s Health) was established in 2010 to support the critical role that New York State pediatric primary care providers play in the early identification and treatment of mild-to-moderate mental health concerns for children ranging in age from 0 to 21.

Western New York Rural AHEC and New York State AHEC are pleased to partner with Project TEACH to promote mental wellness resources to ensure that all children and families lead the best lives possible.

Project TEACH services include:

  • telephone consultations with Project TEACH child and adolescent psychiatrists;
  • face-to-face evaluations provided by the Regional Providers in certain circumstances;
  • linkages and referrals to key community mental health resources; and
  • a diversity of CME accredited educational opportunities.

All New York State Primary Care Physicians are eligible to receive Project TEACH services at no cost, including pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, adult psychiatrists treating children, and other prescribers.
