August 30, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is hosting a two-part webinar series to outline disparities in need and access to mental health services experienced by individuals living with HIV/AIDS in the rural United States, and highlight resources for optimizing access to care and treatment that is inclusive of mental health.
Part 2 – Innovative Approaches to Rural Mental Health Treatment and HIV
The second session will focus on innovative approaches to mental health treatment and HIV currently in use across the geographically diverse rural areas that could also be applied to the rural Deep South. Examples will include tele-psychiatry/tele-psychotherapy (group and individual) and online mental health treatment techniques. Register now.
The webinars will be led by Dr. Karl Goodkin, MD, PhD, DFAPA, Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the James H. Quillen College of Medicine, East Tennessee State University. He has served as a member of the Committee on HIV Psychiatry (formerly the Commission on AIDS) of the American Psychiatric Association, since 1992.
