Abstract

Pediatricians have a vital role in making effective mental health referrals for many children and their families. After selecting families who are appropriate for referral, for which type of resource, and the severity of their problems, the clinician should carry out a careful process to ensure the success of the referral. Special attention should be paid to finding the pain in individual family members, locating appropriate resources, and following up once a referral has been made.
