AOTA: Advancing Opportunity for Occupational Therapy in Mental and Behavioral Health

As federal, state, and local governments develop innovative ways to meet society’s mental and behavioral health needs, there are increasing opportunities for occupational therapy practitioners. This session will focus on AOTA’s efforts to advance occupational therapy in mental and behavioral health, including the progress that has been made, and opportunities and barriers. We will explore how AOTA is working to support practitioners, and how practitioners can advocate for these opportunities.
