MC3 ECHO: Behavioral Health

You have spoken and we hear you. Providers in Michigan communities are frustrated with the lack of access to specialty-level treatment and are treating patients with complex conditions.

In response to these intense and ongoing challenges, we are offering an ECHO® (Extension for Community Health Outcomes) program for providers who are seeking guidance and support when treating youth with complex behavioral health concerns.

ECHO is a telementoring platform that leverages video conference technology to connect subject matter experts with primary care teams in local communities, fostering an “all teach, all learn” approach.
