The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Behavioral Health Administration (BHA) and MedChi are jointly sponsoring a webinar series, the 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 may qualify for CEUs or other continuing education credit, although these are not approved for CEUs by the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners. Participants should check with their certifying organizations to see how these would apply.
For questions about continuing education credit contact Sherrie Noonan at email@example.com. For other questions, or if you are interested in delivering a presentation, being a moderator, or have self-care topics/presenters to suggest, contact Steve Whitefield at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The below webinars are open for registration. All webinars are from 5-6pm, and future webinars will be posted here for the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. Webinar recordings and slides are archived below.
