UofL Trager Institute poised to expand mental health support
A new classification as a Behavioral Health Service Organization will allow the UofL Trager Institute, home of the Republic Bank Foundation Optimal Aging Clinic, to help more Kentuckians receive mental health services.
Behavioral Health Service Organizations fall under a license category created by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. The designation was established to increase the number of entities in Kentucky that provide behavioral health services to Medicaid recipients in community-based programs.
“This classification allows our team to provide behavioral health services to a broader spectrum of our community, as many vulnerable individuals rely on these programs to receive mental health care,” said Anna Faul, Ph.D., executive director of the UofL Trager Institute. 
Faul says the change means the institute can hire more providers and scale services to their already existing statewide network established through the  Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) and Behavioral Health Workforce Enhancement Program (BHWEP).
To learn more about the behavioral health and tele-health offerings, visit  the website or call 502-588-4340.
