The Maternal and Child Health Collaborative Office Rounds (MCH COR) program’s purpose is to enhance the knowledge and skills of community-based, primary care providers in addressing the mental/behavioral health conditions of their patients.

The objectives of this program are to:
- Enhance primary care provider understanding of psychosocial aspects of child development, disorders, and disability
- Increase provider ability to help children and families address these issues
- Expand provider ability to distinguish between transient disturbances and more serious psychiatric disorders which require referral
- Promote collaboration between pediatricians and child psychiatrists
Facilitate a comprehensive approach to health supervision, such as outlined in Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children and Adolescents
