MHRN III Projects: COVID Supplement

Grant Details

Title: Impact and Implications of Rapid Transition to Virtual Mental Health Care during COVID-19

Funder: NIMH

Grant Number: 3U19MH121738-02S1

Grant Period: 9/30/2020 – 6/30/2021

Narrative: The Mental Health Research Network conducts practice-based mental health research in large healthcare systems serving over 25 million patients in 16 states, with a focus on having large-scale data infrastructure available for rapid analyses. This study takes advantage of that infrastructure to study how changing from in-person to phone- or video visits during the COVID-19 crisis disrupts care of people with mental health conditions, including those in important and potentially disadvantaged subgroups. This work will help us understand who needs more support during crises as well as determine who benefits most from telehealth visits as the field of behavioral health care continues to transition to using more of these services.
