The Community Mental Health Association of Michigan (CMHAM) created infographics based on data gathered in their recent statewide behavioral telehealth survey. This resource demonstrates the reported rates of behavioral telehealth use patterns prior to and throughout the height of the pandemic. The survey findings underscore the state's need for improved telehealth access and continued training support for Michigan’s behavioral healthcare providers.
The CMHAM formed the Michigan Behavioral Telehealth Resource Center to strengthen innovative care delivery models and increase the use of evidence-based technologies to improve access to and the quality of behavioral health care. The Resource Center provides multi-level supports for behavioral telehealth, including an online curated resource library, telehealth alert communications, and a statewide advisory group that facilitates partnerships with Medicaid state leadership staff and national policy institutes.
CMHA in partnership with public sector consultants also organized provider/consumer focus groups that offer comprehensive data on telehealth use, satisfaction, and barriers.
