Technical Assistance Partnership for Child and Family Mental Health

Primary Care

A primary care provider is a health care provider who is the first contact with the health care system, before any referrals are made. The primary care provider also oversees the continued health care of the patient over time. Primary care focuses on the general health of all types of patients. These Web pages include information on general health for children and their families, and provide resources, events, funding opportunities, useful Web sites, and frequently asked questions about primary care.
