Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse
RGH is excited to partner with the University of New Mexico in bringing
the Behavioral health and Substance Abuse Echo project to Portales. Project
ECHO is funded in part by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
and has received support from the New Mexico Legislature, the University
of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Department of Health. Project Echo-Access
is dedicated to reaching out and serving rural areas in training and providing
teams with specific curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual
site. RGH and Echo will together use resources to provide local and culturally
appropriate services to patients in order to prevent patients from having
to travel extreme distances, waiting extended periods of times, or not
having an established relationship with the facility and or provider.
