Imagining Behavioral Health Delivery Post COVID-19

Necessity is often the mother of invention. The outbreak of novel Coronavirus and the resulting physical distancing and stay at home orders have resulted in behavioral health providers rapidly adapting and deploying innovative solutions to maintain accessibility and delivery of behavioral healthcare. As the focus shifts towards how we safely return to a new normal, it is critical to ask ourselves, “Can, and should, we ever go back to the way we practiced before? And what will behavioral healthcare look like in the future?”

This conversation was hosted by National Council for Mental Wellbeing and Mental Health Corporations of America, where innovative leaders from behavioral health organizations across the country discussed their experiences and perceptions on the future of behavioral healthcare post COVID-19.
