Allies for Mental Health: Virtual Support through Project ECHO

For a family physician like Laura Barr, M.D., who is trained to practice rural medicine and serves a large Amish population, having a virtual team of mental health experts through NEOMED’s Project ECHO® has been a huge help.

“One physician can’t provide everything,” she says. Regular virtual meetings with a team that includes specialists in psychiatry, counseling and psychiatric pharmacy bolsters her ability to provide mental health care.
