Praise for the text:

“ More than ever before, pediatricians are being called upon to address a myriad of mental health disorders in children and adolescents. Dr. Sarah Vinson has given pediatricians much needed insight and guidance into this field for which most are ill-equipped to handle through her exemplary book, Pediatric Mental Health for Primary Care Providers. Dr. Vinson is an extraordinary psychiatrist who through her lectures, workshops, and consultations have increased the knowledge and skills of primary care physicians throughout the country on the assessment and treatment of mental health disorders in the pediatric population.”

Dr. Vinson is a visionary leader who is deeply connected with the issues that plague underserved children and families. Her new book Pediatric Mental Health for Primary Care Providers fills a critical gap in knowledge and skills around addressing the shortage of pediatric behavioral health providers. This is a valuable resource for pediatricians, nurse practitioners, and other primary care providers who serve pediatric patients.
