A new partnership between Governor Steve Bullock and Billings Clinic was announced Wednesday morning. According to a press release from the Office of the Governor, the partnership will increase statewide access to pediatric psychiatric care in the state through $2.2 million in federal funding.
Dr. Eric Arzubi is the Chair of Psychiatry at Billings Clinic. He explained, “It’s being able to have conversations around our best practices in mental health between a primary care provider, no matter where they are in Montana, and a children psychiatrist, a board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist.”
The new program is called the Montana Access to Pediatric Psychiatry Network, also known as MAPP-Net. The program will connect pediatric psychiatrists to providers across the state, who care for children and youth with mental and behavioral issues.
