BHA/MedChi Behavioral Health Webinar Series: Helping the Helpers and Those They Serve
These webinars are for Maryland’s behavioral health and medical health care workers of all disciplines, whether working in community or hospital settings. They are designed to enhance both health care worker self-care and resultantly the care they provide, as health care workers combat numerous stressors including the COVID-19 pandemic, social justice issues, and other stressors that can potentially impact delivered care.
CMEs will be available at no cost, as will Participant Certificates, which for other disciplines can qualify for continuing education credit. Participants should check with their certifying organizations to see how these would apply.
