Welcome to the DC MAP website!

DC MAP (mental health access in pediatrics) is a program aimed at improving mental health integration within pediatric primary care. Staffed collaboratively by a team of mental health clinicians (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and a care coordinator) from Children’s National Health System and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, the DC MAP team is excited to offer consultation and training to your practice to help you manage the mental health concerns of your patients and their families.

We are aware of the challenges you face trying to manage mental health needs within a busy practice setting! We are here to help! Our website provides information about our program and how we can be of assistance to you, but we encourage you to contact us with questions or to learn more. We look forward to working you!
