Sponsored by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), this event will discuss how telepsychiatry can help states address the shortage of psychiatrists, access challenges for rural populations and may enhance the primary care system’s capacity to treat certain behavioral health conditions earlier when symptoms present.
