This program provides grants to support research that tests scalable and sustainable prevention approaches for implementation in pediatric-serving primary care settings, with an emphasis on populations experiencing mental health disparities. Disparity populations include racial/ethnic minority groups, sexual and gender minorities, individuals living in rural areas, socioeconomically disadvantaged persons, and any other subgroup with documented disparities in prevalence of mental illnesses, mental illness trajectories, access to prevention services, and quality and outcomes of mental healthcare.
