About the Webinar: 


We cannot continue to deliver mental health care in the same way and expect to have improved outcomes.  A paradigm shift is needed to disrupt the status quo.  Implementing a stepped care model, one that leverages technology, can improve access, equity and quality of care.  


In this webinar, colleagues from Canada, the UK, the US and New Zealand will share their experiences with stepped care implementation.  Panelists will discuss how technology is disrupting the dominant scarcity paradigm of established, narrowly regulated programming by expanding the menu of formal and informal care options available both at a population level and in clinic-based settings.
