SAMHSA-Sponsored Telebehavioral Health Webinar Is Now Available

The Telebehavioral Health Institute Faculty (TBHI Faculty) was invited by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Behavioral Health Information Technology and Standards (BHITS) initiative to develop and present a telebehavioral health consumer educational program. The effort culminated in a free telebehavioral health webinar that reviewed legal and ethical issues for consumers.

The TBHI Faculty oversees the development and delivery of telemental health and telebehavioral health training and certification to professional clinicians worldwide. TBHI focuses on legal and ethical risk management related to the use of technologies to better serve behavioral health clients and patients.

Telebehavioral Health and the Consumer

Are you a consumer of behavioral health services, but are sometimes challenged to access them?  Do you live in a remote area?  How can you find a qualified online therapist?  How do you make sure your private information remains confidential?

Consumers of behavioral health services, especially those in sparsely-populated regions or those who have difficulty getting to a provider, should become aware of how this technology can improve access to care.  Webinar participants will learn what kinds of issues can be safely addressed by an online therapist, how they can find a qualified online therapist, how to ensure the information they share remains confidential, and what they can expect to pay for a good online therapist.
