Child and Adolescent Mental Health Resource Guide

Mental Health

mental health resource guideThe DC Collaborative for Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care created the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Resource Guide for use by pediatric primary care providers in the Washington, DC area. This guide aims to provide a comprehensive listing of community behavioral health resources for children and adolescents in the District of Columbia.

This latest version includes information about the operating status of agencies during the COVID-19 pandemic along with updated information related to the DC Medicaid managed care organizations, including searchable filters for CareFirst Community Health Plan DC and Medstar Family Choice MCOs.

While comprehensive, the listing is not exhaustive. Please contact agencies directly with specific question regarding scheduling. This is a working document, and will continually be updated. The main scope is on those providers in the District of Columbia that serve children and families on Medicaid. However, some providers in Maryland and Virginia are included, as well as a few providers across the D.C. area that offer services on a sliding fee scale or accept commercial insurance.
