On April 5, 2017, the Association of Pediatric Program Directors (APPD) and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) cohosted a day-long workshop targeting program directors, associate program directors, and medical education leaders in conjunction with the APPD Annual Meeting. The workshop, entitled “The Mental Health Crisis: Preparing Future Pediatricians to Meet the Challenge,” aimed to enhance recognition of the magnitude and urgency of the behavioral and mental health (B/MH) crisis, identify barriers and facilitators for incorporating robust experiences in B/MH into pediatric training programs, and encourage innovation and networking to achieve resident and fellow competence in providing appropriate care.
