MCD Project ECHO®

Pediatric Behavioral Health Project ECHO®

MCD is working with partners at the State of Maine and behavioral health experts to add Project ECHO® to existing trainings provided through the Maine Pediatric and Behavioral Health Partnership (MPBHP). Designed to implement a standard of care change for health care providers in Maine to improve access to pediatric behavioral health care, the MPBHP offers a support to strengthen local capacity in responding to behavioral health needs of Maine children and families.

The ECHO methodology is a learning framework that applies across disciplines for sustainable and profound change. Offering a regular forum for complex case exploration and recommendations, the curriculum complements existing offerings of the MPBHP and supports referrals to their consultation services for primary care providers.

Rural Behavioral Health Workforce Center

This center supports a network of partners working to develop Maine’s behavioral health workforce. This project utilizes Project ECHO and peer-to-peer learning, including:

Northeast Telehealth Resource Center

The Northeast Telehealth Resource Center (NETRC) has been providing technical assistance, training, and resources throughout New England and New York since 2011. When Project ECHO began to emerge as a TTA topic, there was significant growth in utilization among regional stakeholders, and our NETRC team continues to be a resource for using Project ECHO. In 2017, NETRC served on the advisory group and as an evaluator for the Northern New England Network Project ECHO, along with Quality Counts and partners throughout the region.
