Bridges to Health Grant

The focus of the Bridges to Mental and Behavioral Health project is to improve and expand Telehealth activities that will lead to the successful use of Telehealth for the provision of mental health to individuals in rural nursing homes, mental health clinics, and hospitals, by linking them to distant specialists. This project targets older adults; over 45, who have been diagnosed with mental/behavioral health disorders, dementia, depression, anxiety, delirium and other cognitive and neurological disorders. The project also includes continuing medical education for health care providers and caregivers using video-teleconferencing and focusing on mental health.
