The Behavioral Health ECHO program supports primary care providers in assessing and managing substance use and mental health disorders. The learning series will utilize the ECHO Model to train and support primary care team members, behavioral health professionals, and case managers in the treatment and management of substance use disorders, psychiatric illnesses, and associated co-morbidities, with the goal to help enhance integrated care in identifying and treating these concerns in their patients.
