Information for Referring Providers
CHCB’s Child Psychiatry Consultation Clinic offers consultative services for Vermont Primary Care Providers of children and adolescents ages 21 and under.
Due to our goal of getting appropriate care to children and adolescents as fast as possible, and the volume of requests we are getting, your referral may be answered as a telephone consultative call or email between the child psychiatrist and the PCP, with clear directions for care and support around appropriate triage. This may replace a visit between the family and the child psychiatrist.
Following referral, the child is evaluated during two hour-long appointments, recommendations are reviewed with the family, and sent back to the primary care provider who follows up with the family. This is not ongoing psychiatric care.
If you are a non-CHCB Primary Care Medical Provider (Pediatrics or Family Medicine Provider) and would like to refer a patient to CPCC, please complete our referral form and securely e-mail it to CPCC@chcb.org or fax to (802) 540-6848.
Once you have referred a patient to CPCC, please follow up to ensure the referral was received by emailing CPCC@chcb.org using patient initials.
Please do not have patients contact CHCB directly, rather inform them they will be contacted to schedule the consultation visits. Patients should follow up with their PCP with any questions regarding their referral to CPCC.

Many states provide a stepped care approach to increase mental health support for primary care providers. We are working with Vermont partners to enhance the level of support available for PCPs. In the future, we hope to provide real-time mental health telephone consultation to primary care providers for diagnostic, medication, or treatment planning inquiries.
