​Interior Health’s Mental Health & Substance Use Program is excited to bring to you Project ECHO (Extension of Community Health Outcomes).

Project ECHO was first launched in IH in January 2019 as a pilot project.  Due to its success and popularity, more ECHO cycles for MHSU will take place between 2019-2021.
 
The goal of Project ECHO MHSU is to safely and effectively treat complex MHSU disorders at a primary care level and offer a long-term, affordable solution to address the growing need to increase workforce capacity, to provide best-practice specialty care, and reduce health disparities, in rural, remote and underserved area.

ECHO MSU will link expert inter-professional teams (the hub) with primary care providers in rural and underserved communities. Primary care providers, the spokes in this model, become part of a learning and support community, where they receive mentoring and feedback from the team of experts. Working together, community providers get the help and the support they need to provide care to their patients as close to home as possible.
