ACL TBI Webinar to Focus on Behavioral Health Best Practices
There is a significant intersection between behavioral health and brain injury. Up to 75% of people who seek services for concurrent mental health and substance use disorders live with the effects of brain injury. To further complicate this fact, many people seeking behavioral health services have not been properly diagnosed or screened for brain injury. These people may not even be aware that a brain injury may be partly responsible for their difficulties. Additionally, many state behavioral health systems have policies or practices in place that can inadvertently divert a person with a brain injury from much-needed behavioral health services. Behavioral health clinicians often feel ill-equipped to meet the needs of someone with a brain injury, which can lead to poor treatment outcomes.
The Administration for Community Living (ACL) Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Technical Assistance and Resource Center (TARC) will offer a webinar to present its Behavioral Health Guide, designed to provide state brain injury professionals with the tools to effectively partner with their state behavioral health entities and improve outcomes. This webinar, “Behavioral Health Guide Introductory Webinar: Best Practice Considerations for Children, Youth, and Adults with CBT,” will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. participate in this webinar, register here.
