Please support’s ability to deliver helpful news, opinions, and analyses by turning off your ad blocker.


To assist behavioral professionals seeking evidence-based telehealth training to help deal with COVID-19, I’m hoping that this community can share resources with us at the Telebehavioral Health Institute to pass along to our Community of Learners. If you have behavioral health-related resources that we could post on our webpages for our community, have COVID-19 related telehealth articles to include in our newsletter, or have other ideas about how we might work together to help our clients, please contact us.
