"W.  Out of this appropriation, $994,000 from the general fund each year shall be used for the Collaborative Office Rounds project in order to train primary care physicians how to identify and treat children with mental health issues."

(This amendment provides funding for the Collaborative Office Rounds project. The project consists of monthly meetings between a child/adolescent psychiatrist and primary care providers to give primary care providers the training and confidence they need to treat cases that are within their knowledge and comfort level. This project creates a relationship between the primary care providers and the psychiatrist so children with more acute mental health disorders have direct access to a psychiatrist because of the pre-established relationship.)
