It is the mission of Telehealth Certification Institute, LLC, to provide the highest quality training and consultation to behavioral health professionals and organizations.
Telehealth Certification Institute LLC
Raymond Barrett created Telehealth Certification Institute LLC in May of 2014 with the goals of providing behavioral health providers with the consultation and training they need. Providing telemental health allows them to reach more clients, expand their practice, and give more people access to mental healthcare.
In its six years, Telehealth Certification Institute has expanded to providing telehealth consultations to several different organizations and more than a dozen courses. These courses include training for the telehealth novice, the experienced practitioner, and everyone in between. Students and trainees have the option to participate in Live-webinars, On-site Courses, and Online Self-study Courses. Telehealth Certification Institute has trained over nine thousand clinicians (and counting!), and consistently receives top scores in participant course evaluations.
Due to increased public and governmental interest in telehealth, monetary grants are often available for universities, hospitals, and other organizations to provide their members training in telehealth services. Telehealth Certification Institute participated as a service provider for grant awardees, evaluation, providing consultation, project management, and staff training. Grants for telemental health help increase clinicians' competency in telehealth and overcome barriers to access.
