Webinar 2021 | Behavioral Health Series - September

September 17, 2021


Healthcare professionals in all settings work regularly with patients living with mental health conditions. There is an unmet need for relevant training in behavioral health skills for healthcare workers who do not specialize in psychiatric-mental health care. In these interactive live webinars, experts in behavioral health provide training in de-escalation, suicide prevention, ethical and cultural considerations in mental health, and other skills for use in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

This will be a 5-part series of live webinars, which will be 4-hours a piece. These Behavioral Health Modules are designed for healthcare workers in all settings who want to increase their skills in de-escalation, creating a safe environment, managing and recognizing common psychiatric diagnoses, and much more! Participants will be able to sign up for any number of webinars they choose, and also register later to view recordings of each part of the series. These live webinars are designed to be interactive, integrating brief discussions, skills practice, and role-playing.

Target Audience

Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and other healthcare professionals who work in hospitals, ambulatory settings, urgent care clinics, and other healthcare settings that do not have psychiatric-mental health care as their primary specialty or focus.
