Many communities in North Dakota do not have access to mental health care specialty services that could benefit
them. Access to mental health care improves the quality of life for patients and residents across North Dakota.
The goal of this TeleECHO™ is to improve access to care for pediatric patients with mental health conditions in
rural and underserved communities throughout North Dakota. The focus of this program is to build and strengthen
capacity of best practice care among primary care and other providers supporting patients with these disorders.
