Social Work TV Show Hosted Behavioral Health Month Celebration in New York City
Talk Therapy TV, a cable public access television program created by National Association of Social Workers member Jacob Berelowitz, hosted an Oct. 9 event in honor of New York state’s first ever Behavioral Health Recognition Month.
The free event was held at New York City’s Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum (Pier 86) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It featured a slate of engaging speakers, including A. Kathryn Power, director of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration’s Center for Mental Health Services, and Jaime Torres, regional director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
There was also live music, including performances by Tori Wilson, an 11-year-old singer and songwriter who speaks out against bullying, and Duo of Rock, a music group featuring a man who suffered from substance abuse and his twin sibling who struggled to find help.
“In addition to all of the general excitement at the event, of particular interest to social workers will probably be that NASW-NYC Chapter President Dr. Susan Nayowith, and the Dean of NYU’s School of Social Work Dr. Lynn Videka will be speaking,” Berelowitz said via email.
“Also, there will be free workshops on board the U.S.S Intrepid throughout the day,” he said. “The workshops are eligible for CASAC credits (substance abuse credentialing in New York).”
Jacob, thanks for organizing such a great event!
