Help Improve Mental Health Consultation Experiences


The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) would like to have a better understanding of the need for and resources available to respond to mental health concerns in children and adolescents.

As part of this work, MDH has hired Wilder Research to conduct surveys and key informant interviews with pediatric care providers to gain better insight. MDH is interested in how two resources can be better integrated and improved to align with the needs of patients and providers in Minnesota.

Your feedback will help improve the experiences of other health care providers seeking assistance with youth mental health consultations.

Wilder Research is interested in talking with you about your experience as provider in your community, understanding mental health resources and the underutilization of specific resources to better address mental health. They also interested in recommendations for how to make these resources more available and accessible.

If you are available for a 30-45 minute interview, please sign up for a time slot at If you are unavailable for an interview, but know of another pediatric provider that may be interested, please pass this email on to them.

We appreciate your time and the information you share!
