View Session Recording Session 2: The Evidence-Base for Telebehavioral Health and Digital Mental Health Services The COVID-19 pandemic forced many mental health organizations to rapidly modify services that are typically provided in-person to remote delivery via telehealth. Now as social distancing restrictions are lifted, you have to decide how your services will look going forward. This series of 6 sessions will help you think about how telebehavioral health services could continue to be utilized, how to think about investing for telebehavioral health, and what you need to do now for long-term success.

Mid-America MHTTC trainer Holly Roberts, PhD, LP, sits down with Jason Medows of Ag State of Mind to talk about rural mental health and telehealth. Episode description: Back to interview podcasts today. A few months ago, Elizabeth Lewan from American Psychological Association reached out to me regarding the impact COVID has had on America’s farmers. She put me in contact with Dr. Holly Roberts from the Psychology Department at University of Nebraska Medical Center. Holly and I chatted about her background in a farming community and how getting mental health care treatment into farming communities is often a challenge. We discuss that although COVID is a challenge, it also produced the opportunity to showcase that Telehealth can really work. I am very flattered that APA reached out to me and put me in touch with Holly. I’m also quite impressed that APA is recognizing this need and is going to work on it.

  Hispanic youths are less likely to have access to mental health services and more likely to prematurely terminate services when they do engage in treatment. Common barriers to accessing mental health care include: (a) limited availability of linguistically appropriate services for Spanish-speaking children and families; (b) limited services available in rural areas; (c) lack of transportation to mental health facilities; (d) being under- or uninsured; (e) caregiver employment barriers (e.g., scheduled work hours, leave restrictions; and more recently (f) a global pandemic which has shut down most in-person mental health services for over a year. Telehealth (i.e., the use of interactive technologies such as videoconferencing via computer and/or tablet to deliver mental health services) is an alternative to office-based delivery of treatment which can address disparities in access to care. This introductory webinar will describe the state of the evidence for telehealth delivery of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for underserved Hispanic youth, offer logistical and practical tips for getting started (e.g., equipment, procedures, documentation, ethical and safety considerations), and demonstrate culturally and linguistically tailored resources. Participants will also learn about challenges, facilitators, and special considerations for delivery of TF-CBT via telehealth with Hispanic youth before and during the COVID-19 global pandemic.   Learning objectives:    Describe the state of the evidence for telehealth delivery of Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for underserved Hispanic youth. Describe logistical and practical tips for implementing TF-CBT via telehealth (e.g., equipment, procedures, documentation, ethical and safety considerations). Describe culturally and linguistically tailored resources for implementing TF-CBT via telehealth. Describe challenges, facilitators, and special considerations for delivery of TF-CBT via telehealth with Hispanic youth before and during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
