Endocrine patients gain more access to mental health services

Pediatric patients with endocrinology disorders now have access to mental health services and support through the UC Davis CAARE Center, thanks to a unique integrated care model launched at UC Davis Health. Funded by the Department of Pediatrics, patients can connect with a mental health therapist — regardless of health insurance or ability to pay — to understand needs and undergo therapies that address high-risk behaviors, emotional difficulties, and improve child-caregiver relationships.
