My name is Cheneen Austin and I am a board certified psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner. I completed my Doctorate degree in Nursing with a concentration in psychiatric-mental health nursing at Rutgers University in 2018. I have a special interest in the treatment of substance use disorders. As a result, I obtained my CARN-AP (certified addictions registered nurse-advanced practice) from the International Society of Nurses in Addiction.

About my project
The purpose of this project was to determine what types of barriers clients seeking behavioral health services in Cape May County, NJ face. I evaluated barriers and facilitators (or factors that make seeking treatment easier) to behavioral health treatment. Once those were determined, a report that addresses evidence-based interventions for these barriers was generated and presented to the AtlantiCare healthcare organization.
