Unsurprisingly, telehealth has exploded in popularity with millions of visits, many of which are in behavioral health. Dozens of companies offer fast and cheap consultations via a website or mobile app, obviating the need to make appointments, take time off from work and deal with the many other inconveniences of a traditional doctor’s appointment. The market for such services alone is expected to exceed $1 billion by 2020.
National and state professional associations, regulatory boards and payers are increasingly calling for and organizing professional training from industry leaders to help educate the 1.3 million clinicians offering professional mental health and substance use services in the United States. Comparable needs are seen in many other countries. As international, interprofessional market leaders, the Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) is increasingly being sought to give such trainings.
However, professional training is not simply a matter of understanding and following the law or ethics codes of various associations. The Institute of Medicine outlined a series of recommendations in 2001 and 2003 calling for competencies to be identified and used for professional training in healthcare. TBHI is the only professional training group whose training meets the stringent competencies identified and published in the field (Maheu, Drude, Hertlein, Lipschutz & Hilty, 2017). TBHI is also an approved training program by the Coalition for Technology in Behavioral Science for professionals seeking credentialing. TBHI then, has met the highest bar set by any group for competency-based training in telebehavioral health.
