On the Hub: Behavioral Health Tools for Young Patients

Returning to school can cause some children and teens anxiety, stress and depression. As young patients return to school next month, be prepared to offer them and their caregivers behavioral health support. VHAN offers tools for VHAN providers and helpful information for pediatric patients and their families, including:

For Providers
