The Norwegian Center for Integrated Care and Telemedicine (NST) of the University Hospital of North Norway is the Lead partner in the three-year project, which aims to solve problems in the delivery of mental health promotion and child and adolescent psychiatry services to remote areas by developing diagnosis, consultation, supervision, treatment and collaboration between professionals by using modern information technology. This will increase the knowledge of local multiprofessional experts about mental health and mental disorders of children and adolescents, and support both preventive work and treatment close to the child and his/her developmental environments (school, daycare etc.).
The other partners in the project are the Child Psychiatry Clinic of Kuopio University Hospital, University of Aberdeen (Scotland) and Luleå University of Technology (Sweden).
