Training Across the Various Behavioral Health Disciplines

December 13th, 2018 | 3 p.m. EST

The need to address the behavioral health workforce shortage has never been greater, and behavioral health education and training targeted at the needs of health centers is a way to make an impact. Training the next generation to deliver behavioral health and primary care services as a part of integrated, interprofessional teams, including opioid use disorder and other substance use disorder treatments, is crucial to establishing a strong, dedicated behavioral health workforce in health centers. During this webinar, you will hear from the CHCI’s Chief Behavioral Health Officer and CHCI Behavioral Health Staff as they provide insight into the crucial components of effectively training behavioral health students working toward different behavioral health degrees. Sharing from their decades of experience supervising, our expert panel will discuss strategies to successfully navigate training and educating the next generation of the behavioral health workforce at your health center.
