Ohio’s SFY 2023 Crisis Academy Series: The EmPATH Model and Behavioral Health Urgent Care Webinar

Ohio’s SFY 2023 Crisis Academy will continue on Dec. 9 with The EmPATH Model and Behavioral Health Urgent Care.


Hosted by OhioMHAS, in partnership with RecoveryOhio and the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities, this webinar focuses on both the Emergency Psychiatric Assessment, Treatment and Healing (EmPATH) and Behavioral Health Urgent Care models and how they are being used within the crisis continuum of care.


Dr. Scott Zeller, the developer of the EmPATH model, will share how hospital systems have utilized this model to improve client care while avoiding unnecessary time in traditional emergency departments.


Travis Atkinson from TBD Solutions will provide an overview of behavioral health urgent care models. Additionally, two local system of care will share their experiences starting a psychiatric urgent care unit, the challenges and opportunities they have encountered, and how the unit has improved crisis care in their community.


CEUs are being requested for Ohio social workers, counselors, SUD treatment and prevention professionals, and peer supporters. Click the link above for more information and to register.
