Maine is one of those rural states, but by partnering with the Maine Association of Psychiatric Physicians (MAPP), the Maine Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) is able to offer their members some help. Family physicians in rural Maine had difficulty serving the mental health needs of their patients before a collaboration with the Maine Association of Psychiatric Physicians. The two organizations collaborated in 2003 to start The Consultation Project, a unique endeavor that provides rural primary care professionals with access to a psychiatrist when they need it and where they need it. The brainchild of former MAFP President Richard Hobbs, M.D., of Waterville, Maine, and then-MAPP President William Matuzas, M.D., in collaboration with current MAPP Clinical Practice Committee Chair David Moltz, M.D., the statewide cooperative is a valuable resource for family physicians in rural communities. “I was full-time faculty at the University of Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency, and we had occasion at that time to have a psychiatrist — Bill Matuzas — come and participate in our morning rounds,” Hobbs said. “Bill and I became friends, and owing to our positions at the (MAFP and MAPP), we had a lot of conversations about the plight of primary care docs here in this particularly rural state. There are areas that do not have a psychiatrist close by, and as a consequence, primary care docs are taking care of a lot of people with serious mental illness.” Story highlights Family physicians in the predominantly rural state of Maine often step in to fill the mental health care gap created by a lack of small-town psychiatrists.

Program That Puts FPs in Touch With Psychiatrists Helps Patients in Maine

One of the most high-profile ventures came earlier this year from Center City-based addiction treatment organization Hazelden , which created an iPhone application that provides mobile support to those in recovery. Other apps include Live Happy , which uses the principles of positive psychology to help users develop new habits that make them happier and more resilient. For those who want to explore more clinical topics, PsycExplorer gathers the latest research, blog posts, and news and presents the results in a mobile app. But CogCubed differs from those efforts in that it blends clinical trials into the mix. Most, if not all, of the apps in development or recently released seem to have been developed with a theory in place, but without much scientific-level testing to back up their efficacy. In contrast, CogCubed aims to gain traction through extensive use of clinical data, Heller says. “We’re setting ourselves apart, and we’re being forthright with the FDA about what we’re planning to do,” she notes.
