University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Our program is dedicated to bringing the Recovery Model of Mental Healthcare into the mainstream of professional practice statewide through education of psychiatrists in training and continued education for psychiatrists in LMHAs, state hospitals and in the community. Our trainings are provided jointly by Psychiatrists and Mental Health Peer Specialists and utilize materials developed by the American Psychiatric Association.

This work is funded by a grant from the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health.
