Our children within our communities need to be healthy to reach their full potential.
Access to healthcare is vital. To stay healthy, children need to have regular checkups, vision and dental care, and get medical attention if they get sick or injured. Our dedicated team of Board-Certified Providers developed a systematic approach in developing comprehensive primary and preventative care services for all children in the local school systems to benefit from. Instead of parents having to leave work to pick up a sick child and take them to a doctor’s office, we can do an onsite check-up with parental consent. This reduces parents’ time away from work and with a quick diagnosis, helps decrease the transfer of sicknesses to other students and enables students to miss fewer days from school. Our program is a low-cost, convenient, and comprehensive healthcare program for children under age 19. Benefits can include regular checkups and immunizations, sick child doctor visits, prescriptions, vision and dental care, hospitalization, mental health and substance abuse services, and much more.

The lack of quality and access in children’s mental health services is no longer a question, but a growing concern. In a report by the Institute of Medicine, “Preventing Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Disorders Among Young People: Progress and Possibilities,” it is estimated that each year 14% and 20% for children and adolescents experience a mental, emotional, or behavioral disorder. Despite this documented need for care, it is estimated that 70% of children with a diagnosable mental illness do not receive treatment.
Within the United States, there is a shortage of child and adolescent mental health care. The disproportionate shortage across Alabama’s Black Belt is even more significant and can be considered a crisis. RHMPI is committed to breaking the stigma for future generations and has been diligently working with local school systems to launch school-based telemedicine and telepsychiatric health programs in public schools through partnerships with Perry County Schools and Sumter County Schools.
