PMHCA Project: SBHCs & Project Teach

About Project TEACH

Project TEACH is a program funded by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). Additional information can be found here.

Telephone Consultations: Clinical Access Line: 1-855-227-7272

Available Monday – Friday from 9am to 5pm.

Project TEACH allows prescribers in New York State to speak directly with a child and adolescent psychiatrist and/or reproductive psychiatrist. Ask questions, discuss cases, review treatment options, or obtain referral assistance. Whatever you need to support the mental health needs of the patients in your practice.

If you have a question about pediatric or perinatal mental health, here’s how the access line works:


  1. You (or someone in their office familiar with the case) can call the clinical line: 1-855-227-7272.
  2. A behavioral health expert (liaison coordinator) answers, gathers intake information, and responds to questions  about resources.
  3. Then, within 30 minutes (or at a requested time), a child/adolescent or perinatal psychiatrist will call you, the prescriber.
