NSU: $1.9 million grant will help expand the delivery of mental health services in Louisiana through telehealth

Other objectives are to develop strategies for technology integration in the provision of behavioral healthcare by Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners and recruit a PMHNP workforce that expands the diversity of the targeted geographic areas. The project has three primary objectives. The first is to increase multidisciplinary training experiences for Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner students that integrate behavioral health care for high-risk, high-needs youth, adolescents, and transition-aged youth within primary care environments. NSU says students in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner concentration must complete 608 clinical hours throughout the program, most of which are located within rural and underserved Health Professional Shortage Areas.

“The recent pandemic emphasized the need for innovation in healthcare delivery. This grant will help support and develop telehealth delivery within our program and experiential learning sites, which not only improves access to underserved communities but also ensures future nurse practitioners are prepared to effectively use the technology in the care they provide.” Caddo Parish children will receive meals during summer months thanks to major grant

According to Northwestern State University, the grant begins in July and will run through June 2025. Funding will support stipends for trainees in final experiential training and support educational activities in telehealth delivery for students, faculty, and community partners.  Northwestern State was one of 56 recipients to receive $22 million in awards for 2021-22 as part of the Behavioral Health Workforce and Education Training Program for Professionals.
