What is NC-PAL?

NC-PAL or the NC Psychiatry Access Line, is a telephone consultation program designed to assist primary care providers in addressing the behavioral health needs of pediatric, pregnant, and post-partum patients.

When primary care providers have a question about perinatal mental health, they can call our NC-PAL line to be connected with the information they need. Our care coordinators respond to questions within the scope of their expertise, provide resources and referrals, and can connect providers to one of our psychiatric perinatal mental health specialists. Our board-certified psychiatric perinatal mental health specialists can assist with diagnostic clarification and medication questions.
