Many believe that technology can help address the behavioral health workforce crisis. Join the discussion!


This is the latest session in our ongoing Workshop Wednesday series.


Event Description


12:00 - 1:00 p.m. MT / 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. CT

During COVID-19, many providers found themselves forced to use technology to be able to meet their client’s needs while addressing the pandemic’s unique restrictions. 
 
Many organizations, including the American Medical Association (AMA), now believe that technology can help address the behavioral health workforce crisis. 
 
Technology has opened a new frontier in mental health support and data collection. Mobile devices like cell phones, smartphones, and tablets are giving the public, providers, doctors, and researchers new ways to access help, monitor progress, and increase understanding of mental well-being. 
 
Join us for November’s Workshop Wednesday as Laurie Dale, a nationally known technology expert, working in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities, explains how to utilize off-the-shelf technology to affordably support direct care staff and people with disabilities. This presentation will focus on how small to mid-size agencies can take advantage of off-the-shelf technology to assist management in developing efficient strategies that support staff with routine duties and their remote support interactions.
