Mental Health & Social Work

Collaborative Care begins with screening tools given to patients at their medical visits. The feedback from these tools, and the subsequent conversations physicians have with patients/families, often result in families working with one of the Wayne Pediatrics clinical social workers to address the concerns raised.

A social work assessment is focused on identifying the specific needs of a child/family. Once needs are identified, intervention options are discussed and a comprehensive intervention plan is cooperatively developed. This plan can include:

  • medical follow-up
  • referral to community resources or,
  • in the event of a need for behavioral health support, a direct referral to a behavioral health program therapist.
