Free Telebehavioral health training from LearnTelehealth.orgThere is an exciting telebehavioral health training series for HRSA-funded safety net providers and rural health clinics. The Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS) is sponsoring the series of 12 sessions including six trainings and six question and answer sessions. The series started on May 22 but the first two sessions are archived online at the links below.

According to the CIHS site:

“This Telebehavioral Health Training and Technical Assistance Series is designed to help you increase access to behavioral health services through telemedicine offered via interactive educational sessions with telebehavioral health subject matter experts. Each educational session will be followed by separate Q+A/technical assistance session. Subject matter experts in the field will be available to assist you in your implementation.

After completing this training and TA series, participants will be able to:

  • Identify for their own organization, one or more telebehavioral health service models that are clinically appropriate and a pathway to sustainability;
  • Identify and engage the range of stakeholders necessary to successfully establish telebehavioral health services;
  • Coordinate their telebehavioral health activities with pertinent local, state and federal partners.

The T/TA Series is targeted to organizations that have determined that telebehavioral health services are part of their future and want to move forward. The training uses the Triple Aim and Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Practice Transformation as a framework.”
