Grant to a New York nonprofit organization or academic institution to provide telehealth technologies to help meet the needs of individuals with psychiatric needs. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to applying. The purpose of the program is to reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, provide access to psychiatric consultations for the SMI population in SNFs, reduce the use of psychiatric inpatient hospitalizations, and readmissions to OMH psychiatric centers.

These services are meant to be delivered in trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, and culturally and linguistically competent ways. An integral part of this SNF ESP is the provision of Telehealth Services: ECHO, Telepsychiatry, and Teletherapy: 


  • Case-based educational experiences in which community practitioners develop “knowledge networks.” The sharing of best practices through a combination of short didactic presentations & case-based discussions with content experts.
  • Bi-weekly clinics for 60-minute sessions include 30 minutes for a case presentation by a participating SNF team and 30 minutes didactic lecture-based upon the case presented. Requires the provision of Continuing Medical Education (CME/CE) credits for each hour of participation.


  • Provide timely psychiatric consultations for SNF residents using interactive telemedicine technology.


The Teletherapy Program is a collaboration between the psychotherapist and team members which is key to address specific resident, family, and/or health concerns. The Basics of Care Delivery expected would be:

  • Facility staff sets-up virtual meeting for resident and facilitates the joining of the resident in the meeting
  • Residents will connect with the teletherapist privately
  • Communication among resident, teletherapist, and SNF staff can be facilitated as part of the 50-minute telepsychiatry session when indicated
