UPHCS Project ECHO is a telementoring program which uses videoconferencing technology to disseminate and implement best practices through case-based mentorship. The program aims to:

  • Strengthen providers’ ability to treat mild to moderate mental health concerns.
  • Provide a broader range of billable services.
  • Reach rural and underserved communities.
  • Leverage resources through technology.

The success of our Project ECHO series led to UPHCS being awarded a $255,318 behavioral health grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund. This will further expand our integration of behavioral health knowledge to providers from improved acute and chronic mental and physical health outcomes.


What is ECHO? 
ECHO is a tele-mentoring program that uses videoconferencing technology to combine brief didactic presentations with interactive and practical case presentations from participants. Each session will consist of a 15-minute didactic presentation and 45 minutes of case-based learning, including peer Q&A.

Who should attend?
Primary care clinical teams (which may include MD, DO, NP, PA, RN, and LPN) are invited to participate. Attendees will be asked to submit cases for collaborative review before the session. 

When are the ECHO Sessions?
Sessions usually occur from 12:00-1:00 pm EST. Instruction will be led by Subject Matter Experts.
