JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - Mental health professionals from our region came together to learn how they can better serve you and your family on Wednesday.
Frontier Health offered training for psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers who work in mental health to review policies on ethical and legal issues when it comes to their patients.
The all-day training centered on making important ethical decisions and 'conditional' confidentiality.
Diane Whitehead organized the training. "Most of the things people say have to be kept confidential, but there are things that we have to report," said Diane Whitehead. "So if we suspect any type of child abuse or elder abuse we have to report it. That's what we are trying to be sure we have straight, what we can keep private and what we have to report."
The training took place at the Millennium Centre in Johnson City, it was also open to the public.
