PBI Network CE Lecture Series

The lecture series is open to all mental health providers and researchers within and outside of VA who are interested in use of technology (e.g., mobile apps, online interventions, and telehealth) to support treatment for Veterans with PTSD and related mental health concerns (e.g., anger, substance use, and insomnia). These live, virtual, knowledge-based webinars are hosted by subject matter experts from VA’s National Center for PTSD (NCPTSD), Dissemination & Training Division, and feature a different speaker and technology-related topic each month.

Please share with colleagues who might be interested! If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive information about future lectures, please email MobileMentalHealth@va.gov.
