Santa Cruz County Clinicians Discuss Kids’ Mental Health
On Tuesday, about 90 Santa Cruz County pediatricians, physicians and mental health care providers held a meeting to discuss efforts to improve mental health care coordination for young people. The health care providers said they aim to create the county's first Pediatric Mental Health Registry, which would contain information on mental health specialists who work with young people. The group said the registry would contain information about each clinician's location, specialty and interests to make it easier for health care providers to provide referrals.
