Did you know that more than 50% of primary care visits in the U.S. are related to some sort of mental health concern? Although children and adolescents make up nearly 25% of Colorado’s population, they account for 33% of the mental health conditions diagnosed in Colorado. Providers at Mountainland Pediatrics will ask you and your child questions at each of your visits that are geared to identify potential emotional or behavioral issues, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. A mental health specialist from Community Reach Center is available to consult with your pediatrician and you, as needed, for children of any age.
