University of Vermont Project ECHO Mental Health Advanced Series: Depression in Primary Care
The Mental Health Advanced Series is a multi-year program with a fall and spring series each year. The 8-session fall series will discuss best practices and evidence-based care for patients experiencing depression, including strategies, screening tools, resources, clinical pearls, and emerging topics in the field. The multi-year program is designed to provide strong foundational knowledge and opportunities for in-depth exploration of mental health integration, with the aim of increasing provider confidence and skill. The spring series will focus on anxiety disorders, following a similar format and in the consistent timeslot of Wednesdays from 12:00-1:30.
This program is offered at no cost to participants through a grant from the Vermont Department of Health.
Participants can receive 1.5 CME credits for each learning session attended.
