Telehealth Network Grant

The Goals of the Telehealth Network Grant utilizes Telehealth networks to improve healthcare services, and expand access to the quality of mental health care services to the elderly; improve and expand the training of mental health care providers for the elderly; and expand and improve the quality of health information available to mental health care providers, patients, and their families. We are working to improve the management of mental health diseases/disorders in older adults by providing higher levels of care, through collaborating with distant psychiatrists, mental health counselors and educators, and geriatricians who provide consultations for patients and local providers. The project also provides Continuing Medical Education to providers to enhance their capacity to care for those with mental health illness.
