HRSA awards University of Buffalo School of Nursing $2.4M to expand mental health treatment

The Health Resources and Services Administration awarded the University of Buffalo (N.Y.) School of Nursing three grants totaling $2.4 million to expand mental health treatment in American Indian communities.

The three grants will allow the school of nursing to employ more nursing staff, improve training for nursing students in rural areas, develop mental health screening and treatment programs and establish telehealth access for patients.

The training for nursing students will include educational and experiential emphasis on cultural sensitivities about healthcare beliefs.

The school will partner with the Lewiston, N.Y.-based Tuscarora Health Center, a primary care facility that serves the Tuscarora Indian Reservation, to increase substance abuse screening and treatment options.
