Behavior Health

Integrated Behavioral Health Provider

Our office is proud to offer behavioral health services through a  full time integrated behavioral health provider. We strive to have our provider readily available to assist with patient visits when behavioral health needs are identified as well as all well-child visits to promote holistic growth and development. Our integrated behavioral health provider is an independently licensed social worker who can conduct a variety of in depth diagnostic assessments for our pediatric patients and work closely with our team to help bridge care to our surrounding community mental health services when patients could benefit from specialty mental health services. To schedule an appoitnment with our clinician please call our office during normal business hours.

Well-Child Visits

We at Pediatric Care Associates are excited offer primary mental health support at well-visits. In addition to routine screenings for social, emotional, and behavioral well-being, we are now able to offer Annual Mentlah Health Wellness Exams in accordane with Massachusetts law Chapter 177 of the Acts of 2022. We strongly believe that emotional health and well-being is just as important as physical health and new legislation supports our philosophy of treating physical and emotional health.


Primary Mental Health support covers a wide array of issues including:

  • Social-emotional development

  • Transitions and life changes

  • Mental health supports

  • Caregiver resources and supports.


In addition to these supports, our team can also support the connection to community resources such as:

  • Housing

  • School

  • Other essentials to support families to raise healthy children.
