Dr. David Hardy is the Assistant Director of Operations at Apex Brain Centers and a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist. Since our show focuses on all aspects of Behavioral Health it was important to bring on a guest that could share their professional expertise in regards to brain functioning and how this affects mental health. We also veer into how our addiction to technology – Facebook, cell phones, and social media in general affects our brain chemistry and emotional well-being.

HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus, PCI regulations - these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization.

An often under appreciated area of Behavioral Health is the grant writing process. Many of the agencies we work with are not-for-profit and always looking for help maintaining their existing grants as well as obtaining funding from new sources. We met Karen Celedonia through our colleague Theresa Wray. Working on projects together to support mental health agencies, we knew we needed to interview Karen and introduce her work to our providers.

Dr. Gary Blau, Chief of the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services, joined Dr. Greene this month to discuss his work in the field of mental health. Among other issues, Dr. Blau discusses the alarmingly high rate of children in need of mental health services and the much lower rate of care available. He recommends not only expanding the number of health care providers, but also expanding the thinking of who could be helpful in treating these issues. Along these lines, he introduces the idea of mental health first-aid as a critical first step in providing appropriate services to children with mental health needs. In addition, Dr. Blau discusses the importance of a strength-based treatment model and the feasibility of family-driven, youth-guided service provision.
Careful consideration went into this interview with Dr. James H. Fallon. It is not every day that a boutique radio show like ours reaches out to a world-renowned neuroscientist, let alone one that has contributed immeasurably to the field of human behavior we avidly support. However, Dr. Fallon, who asked me simply to call him “Jim”, was easy to reach, glad to be of service, and said he was up for anything I wanted to ask him in this interview. He did ask that we stay away from personal stories that might negatively affect his family.
We have a large audience of survivors of psychological abuse, please be advised this show could be very triggering for some listeners. We’ve already privately shared this show with a few of our Behavioral Health practitioners. It was triggering for some of them due to the nature of how I was asked certain questions.
We suggest all listeners read the full BLOG article HERE.

everythingEHR is always on the hunt for innovative technology that aids our Behavioral Health providers. Our article on Spiritually Integrated Therapy was found by Next Step Solutions, Inc. After reading our other articles on why we care so much about this sector of healthcare, Next Step picked up the phone and made a connection with our CEO, Kristin Walker.
A visit to their corporate office in Michigan last year was yet another stop on our 2014 journey across the United States visiting EHR vendors and Behavioral Health practices. Kristin had the opportunity to meet everyone on the team and see what a software organization does that is heavy on development and light on marketing agendas. It was certainly a pleasure.
NextStep™ has developed a digital pen system and embedded artificial intelligence into their EHR. Sounds unbelievable right? A science fiction movie, maybe? We saw it action at their office and while we visited several of their clients. NextStep™ has clients across the United States using their award-winning software for behavioral health private practices, research clinics, residential programs, outpatient agencies and state hospitals. It was a pleasure to sit down with Dr. Darrin Hanna and David Ballenberger, MSW to discuss their product, their organization, and what the future holds for behavioral health technology.
