How To Make Telehealth Work for You!
During the pandemic, care delivery had to adapt quickly to lockdowns as demand for services increased. This shift required providers and patients alike to make an unexpected pivot to telehealth. Now, three years into COVID, telehealth is here to stay. What have we learned about this new way to access and meet our healthcare needs?  And how can we make it work better for us all? “Just because you are not seeing the person in-person, you should still feel empowered to try to get a situation that makes you feel as comfortable as you can be. And if you don’t feel comfortable, you are always allowed to try to get a better situation for yourself” - Deborah L. Cabaniss, MD Join Paul and Marjorie as they discuss how telehealth has changed mental health and what it means for accessibility and care for patients.    Meet the Experts: ​J.

Rise of the Machines: Mental Health and Tech
Can AI become a part of our mental health journeys? Recently, we’ve seen rapid development in this space, with the creation of apps, an increase of use in Virtual Reality for exposure therapy and even virtual therapists. How do we leverage these powerful technologies and keep the human in mental health care? “You could say that AI never tires, it is always available, it has encyclopedic knowledge of all clinical practice and all clinical conditions, and it remembers everything. But… there's something about interacting with a human that expresses empathy, shows that they understand your situation and can be honestly critical… those are powerful things too. Is there a middle ground here?” - Dr. Alber “Skip” Rizzo Our hosts sit down with experts and discuss how tech and AI are being applied to the mental health space and where they see mental health technology going in the future.   Meet the Experts: Albert “Skip” Rizzo, PhD conducts research on the design, development and evaluation of virtual reality (VR) systems targeting the areas of clinical assessment, treatment rehabilitation and resilience.

Anti-Racism: What Comes Next?
Events of the past few years have driven  more conversations about systemic racism, diversity and inclusion. The pandemic exposed the racial disparities in the healthcare system. During the lockdown, we also had the shared experience of watching the murders, violence and hate crimes towards individuals from the BIPOC community on the news and in our social media feeds.. Following the lead of our youth, people of all ages and backgrounds have come to realize that the conversation needs to change and action needs to be taken to move us forward towards an inclusive and equitable future. “There is also a space for understanding that the health inequities including the mental health inequities, put a huge burden on a specific population of our nation, of our communities. That then puts a burden on all of us because we are all affected.” - Dr. Patrice Malone Our hosts, Marjorie Morrison and Paul Deger are joined by two experts and discuss how the conversation around race changed as well as what is being done by companies, institutions and individuals to bring change and make the new normal more inclusive.   Meet the Experts: Patrice K.

During the height of the pandemic, many of us were cut off from our usual contact with friends and family, missing out on celebrations at our homes or maybe just meeting at the corner coffee shop to catch up.. Overnight, we went from warm hugs to distant waves to a 2D image on a screen. This isolation led many of us to experience new levels of loneliness. Unfortunately, as we move past the pandemic, we are still seeing increased feelings of loneliness worldwide. “Let’s get comfortable being uncomfortable. One of the things that makes it worse when you are feeling lonely is you don’t know what to do, you don’t know how to reach out, and you don’t know what to say. So, I think that the key is just do it: jump into the deep end.” Dr. Bita Rivas Join us on this episode of Coming Back Better, as Marjorie Morrison and Paul Deger dive a little deeper into what loneliness is and how our community can be the key to helping us leave isolation behind.   Meet the Experts: Amy Pearlman is a licensed independent clinical social worker in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, with a Master of Social Work from Smith College.

The pandemic created a pause in business as usual and invited many of us to reflect on our world.
