BHA/MedChi Behavioral Health
Webinar Series:

Helping the Helpers and Those They Serve

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 can qualify for continuing education credit. Participants should check with their certifying organizations to see how these would apply.

The below webinars are open for registration. All webinars are from 5-6pm. Registration for future webinars, which will be on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, will be posted on the BHA/MedChi webinar webpage, where webinar recordings and slides are also archived.
