Technological advances have paved the way for innovation in delivering quality behavioral health services to service members, veterans, and their families (SMVF). These advancements provide SMVF with many resources that mitigate challenges and increase access to care.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury at the U.S. Department of Defense, are actively using innovative technology (e.g., smartphone applications, social media, video chats) to support the delivery of telehealth and telebehavioral health services. This webinar will focus on how these innovative technologies can be applied to better meet the diverse needs of SMVF.

Please note, participants will only be able to hear the webinar through their computer via headphones or speakers. We recommend ensuring you use external speakers for your desktop. Participants are asked to test their system before the broadcast.
