The Virginia Center for Healthcare Innovation shall establish the Virginia Pediatric Mental Health Collaborative with the Virginia Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, Voices for Virginia's Children, the Psychiatric Society of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Virginia's Departments of Psychiatry, the Virginia Academy of Family Physicians, the Departments of Medical Assistance Services and Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, the Virginia Association of Community Services Boards and other relevant stakeholders to establish the Virginia Pediatric Mental Health Collaborative. The goal of the Collaborative is to improve the integration of mental health in primary pediatric care for children in the Commonwealth.

2. By October 1, 2016, the Collaborative shall survey existing collaborative efforts between pediatricians, family physicians, and the children's mental health system and create a plan to implement pilot programs creating child mental health access projects through which a mental health consultation team is available by telephone to respond promptly to pediatricians who need assistance with managing their patients' mental health needs. The consultation team would provide clinical consultation to enhance pediatricians' abilities to evaluate, treat, co-manage and refer children with mental health problems.

3. During this planning grant, the Center shall be assisted when necessary by the Departments of Medical Assistance Services and Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, with technical assistance provided by Children's National Health System, a co-founder of the DC Collaborative for Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care."
