Virtual Peer-Learning Office Hours are a series of online technical assistance sessions in which participants can engage in facilitated discussions on various integrated behavioral health topics. Most peer-learning sessions will feature subject-matter experts from selected health centers, who will highlight a successful project or initiative and share best practices based on their experience. During these interactive sessions, participants will learn about topics such as:

  • Addressing workforce burnout and retention
  • Adolescent depression screening
  • Outreach and engagement with the community, including health resources to address social determinants of health
  • Transgender health care considerations
  • Effective tele-behavioral health approaches

Sessions are generally held monthly and are 1 hour in length. Each session features a brief presentation followed by a facilitated discussion. These sessions are designed to provide health centers opportunities to learn from one another and to collaboratively troubleshoot issues in specific areas within integrated care. Presenters will also be available to provide more customized support in a follow-up drop-in session for participants with specific needs, questions, and concerns.

Participants may earn up to 1 CE for each session they attend.
