Dr. Eric Arzubi, a Billings-based child and adolescent psychiatrist, will deliver “Frontier Psychiatry: A Vision for Mental Health in Montana,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12, in Norm Asbjornson Hall’s Inspiration Hall on the Montana State University campus in Bozeman. The talk is free and open to the public.
Arzubi is expected to discuss his experiences introducing new clinical programs to the state and share his emerging vision for a robust continuum of mental health care designed to reach all Montanans.
Arzubi, who has been serving patients in Montana since 2013, is currently chair of psychiatric services and medical director of the ECHO Program at Billings Clinic. He previously chaired the Department of Psychiatry at the Billings Clinic for nearly five years and was on the clinic’s leadership council for two years. He completed his general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry training at the Yale University School of Medicine.
As chair of the Billings Clinic Department of Psychiatry, Arzubi led a team in the launch of programs to improve access to high-quality mental health care in the region, including Billings’ first school-based health center; Project ECHO Billings Clinic; the region's only emPATH unit, which stands for emergency Psychiatric Assessment, Treatment and Healing; and Montana's first psychiatry residency training program.
Arzubi’s talk is hosted by MSU’s Center for Mental Research and Recovery. The reception is sponsored by the MSU Office of Research, Economic Development and Graduate Education.
