Youth Behavioral Health ECHO

The MUSC Boeing Center for Children's Wellness (BCCW) and the Youth Access to Psychiatry Program (YAP-P) are collaborating on the launch of a Youth Behavioral Health ECHO beginning in the Winter of 2024.


What is an ECHO?

ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative medical education and care management model that empowers clinicians to provide better care to more people: right where they live. An ECHO creates ongoing learning communities where community-based providers receive support and develop the skills they need to treat pediatric populations.


Main Topics of Focus:

  • Mental health screening in clinical practice and in schools
  • How to navigate a positive behavior or mental health complaint in clinical practice
  • Resources and use of the MTSS Framework
  • Understanding common language of school supports for students 
  • Overview of common mental health disorders in children and adolescents
  • Medication management for mental health disorders in children
  • School services and accommodations for common mental health disorders in children and adolescents
  • The epidemiology and effects of trauma
  • Non-pharmacological interventions for trauma and related disorders
