a component program of
Project TEACH

CAP PC is a collaboration between 5 university-based Departments of Psychiatry at the University at Buffalo, University of Rochester, Columbia University Medical Center/New York State Psychiatric Institute, SUNY Upstate, and Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.  We have partnered with the NYS AAP, NYS AFP, and the REACH Institute to develop the program. Each of the 5 university sites has a team of 2-3 child and adolescent psychiatrists and 1 Liaison Coordinator (LC), and a Care coordination assistant who rotate coverage of the toll free phone line and participate in the educational programs. All child/adolescent psychiatrists are faculty members at their respective universities and the Liaison Coordinators have a minimum of a Master’s degree in a mental health field. When a PCP calls the toll free line the LC will be the first responder. The LC will pass information on to the child psychiatrist who will return the PCP call within the next 2 hours. Here are our teams and the days they provide consultation coverage.
