In late 2019, the Mississippi and Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry partnered with the CHAMP Project and Families as Allies to apply for a grant to support telepsychiatry being used in ways that are most responsive to families and children in Mississippi.
Little did any of the partners know just how relevant that topic would be when the grant was awarded in March 2020. Families as Allies greatly appreciates this partnership, especially the opportunities we’ve had to train child psychiatry interns and fellows in family-driven practice.
The project will culminate in a virtual telepsychiatry summit on February 20. We hope all of you will join us. Watch our Facebook page and newsletter for registration details coming soon.
