Indiana Child and Adolescent Mental Health TeleECHO Clinic


Indiana University’s School of Medicine is excited to invite you to participate in the Indiana Child and Adolescent Mental Health TeleECHO Clinic. Through CAMH ECHO, they will provide specialized education and mentorship in the clinical management of pediatric mental health issues to primary care providers and other community stakeholders with the goal to build capacity for delivery of high quality, best-practice care locally for patients across the state of Indiana.
This high-impact intervention links community-based clinicians with an interdisciplinary team of expert specialists, led by the Indiana University School of Medicine, using Zoom videoconferencing technology.  Experts mentor community based providers across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling primary care clinicians and other health professionals to treat pediatric patients with mental health disorders in their own communities.  Our weekly 90 minute sessions consist of a brief lecture on a topic related to child/adolescent mental health, followed by a review and discussion of de-identified cases submitted by participants that we work through in a collaborative fashion to better diagnose and manage the patient. These sessions will occur through September 2020.
This FREE program will start Thursday, August 22, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. - 11 a.m. (EDT) and will meet every week at the same time. To register, please complete a short survey https://iu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3aeGDILswKQqaVL​ or contact Jacqueline Boese, ECHO program coordinator via email camhecho@iu.edu. Space is limited.
