T2 Launches Online Community for Military Mental Health Professionals

National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2) invites military mental health professionals to join “Psychological Health Providers for the Military Community,” a new group the center manages on LinkedIn. This initiative creates additional opportunities for providers to share information and best practices for treating psychological health or traumatic brain injury.

 “Our vision for this group is to offer an engaging environment where mental health providers can share knowledge, exchange ideas and collaborate to help provide the highest level of support and care for service members, veterans and military families,” said Dr. Greg Gahm, executive director of T2.

Members of the group will have centralized access to deployment-related behavioral health resources from the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs as well as other government and civilian organizations. Additionally, they can access unique content and receive previews of new resources, tools and technologies focused on the provider community.

If you have questions about this new professional group, or would like more information, you can contact T2 via email at AskUs@T2Health.org. Please note that participation in the group requires that you have a LinkedIn account. You can learn more about LinkedIn and create an account by visiting their sign-up page.

A center of Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE), T2 designs, tests and evaluates available and emerging technologies in support of psychological health and traumatic brain injury recovery for service members, veterans and their families.
