Childrens Hospital Primary Care Center (CHPCC) | Supporting Families

At Boston Children's Primary Care, we know that health is more than just medical care. We know, too, that parenthood--and life--can be hard sometimes. If you are concerned about your child's behavior or mental health, if you are struggling as a parent, or if you need help finding resources and support for your family, call us.

Our mental health team of licensed social workers, psychologists, clinical nurse practitioner and psychiatrist can help with your child's mental health and behavioral needs. We provide crisis assessment, behavioral consultation, therapy and when needed evaluation for medication.

Our patient navigators are available to help with a variety of resource needs.

Please talk to your child's doctor or call or ask for the on-call social worker to help you with resource and behavioral health concerns.
