Psychiatric Resource Network Programs: RI MomsPRN and PediPRN Teleconsultation Services

Mission

To empower healthcare providers treating pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients in addressing behavioral health concerns.

This work is facilitated through two psychiatric teleconsultation lines:

  • RI MomsPRN serves providers treating pregnant women and postpartum patients in partnership with the Center for Women’s Behavioral Health at Women & Infants Hospital. Learn more about RI MomsPRN.
  • PediPRN serves providers treating children and adolescents in partnership with Bradley Hospital. Learn more about PediPRN.

These phone lines give healthcare providers treating pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients real-time clinical consultations with specialty psychiatrists to discuss patient diagnosis, treatment planning, medication safety, and referral support.

NOTE: These phone lines are for healthcare providers to call mental health clinicians for teleconsultations. These are not patient-facing phone lines.

What we do

  • Expand the capacity of healthcare providers treating pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients to provide behavioral health care through real-time clinical consultation with specialty psychiatrists to discuss patient diagnosis, treatment planning, and medication safety.
  • Maximize a limited workforce of specialty behavioral health providers, so more perinatal individuals and children with emerging or diagnosed mental health disorders receive early and continuous, culturally attuned support and treatment with a focus on the social determinants of health.
  • Refer providers of pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients to community-based resources, including outpatient therapy, support groups and family visiting services.
  • Support providers of pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients and medical practices in universal screening for behavioral health and substance use disorder in all of their eligible patients.
  • Deliver assistance to providers treating pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients with substance use disorder, including but not limited to information on medication-assisted treatment and referral to substance use treatment providers and peer recovery supports.
  • Offer opportunities for providers of pregnant, postpartum, or pediatric patients to attend professional education sessions, participate in comprehensive case-based training, and/or quality improvement learning cohorts.
  • Enact relevant priorities of Rhode Island’s Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant and support other relevant public health initiatives.
