Prestera gets $280,000 grant for technology-driven care

Posted: Updated:
HUNTINGTON, WV -

A local mental health facility was just awarded a grant to expand its treatment. 

Prestera Center for Mental Health Services will receive a $280,000 Mental Health and Substance Abuse Service Grant to expand its Technology Assisted Care. 

This will help providers get to patients in an eight-county district via telemedicine. The money will aid in helping clients can obtain treatment and specialty care without barriers such as transportation, lack of qualified provider, or stigma which may be inhibiting their access to care.
