Drexel University College of Medicine, Behavioral Healthcare Education

Behavioral Healthcare Education (BHE) was established in 1980 with contractual funding from what is now the Pennsylvania Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. The purpose of its creation was to turn clinical knowledge from biological and programmatic research into information and skills that are directly useful to practitioners in the behavioral health fields, particularly those working with persons in the public and Medicaid managed care arenas who have serious and persistent mental disorders. Since that time BHE has added expertise in the areas of substance use disorders, intellectual/developmental disabilities, and child and adolescent diagnoses and treatment. The mission of the Division of Behavioral Healthcare Education is to support behavioral health practitioners in providing high quality services to people of all ages. We fulfill this mission through delivering continuing education, consultation, technical assistance, and conferences, using evidence-based and promising practices, research findings, and program and policy advances.

Please note that in the preceding credit statements “a maximum of” means just that, since credit is awarded according to the number of actual sessions attended during the conference. Signed validation forms attest to the number of sessions attended. When the program is seminar, then these words are deleted, since full attendance is required in order to receive credit. Credit cannot be awarded to those who only attend a “partial” session. Where these words are not bracketed (AMA and PSNA), they MUST be retained in the statement in any case.
