Behavioral Health Networking Group


The new Behavioral Health Networking Group aims to provide a unique opportunity to illuminate important facets of rehabilitative services and outcomes pertaining to patient-care and family system experiences through integrated and strategic support, collaboration, and education.

At this time, in the landscape of rehabilitative medicine and services, there remains a gap in the networking of interdisciplinary rehabilitation specialists and collaborative efforts with rehabilitation counselors and mental health providers more broadly, including, but not limited to:

  • Psychologists
  • Licensed clinical social workers
  • Therapists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Nurses


  • Behavioral health is cross-cutting
  • To Provide a distinct & unique platform to increase behavioral health awareness and intervention.
  • To illuminate important facets of rehabilitative services and outcomes pertaining to behavioral health and patientcare and family system experiences through integrated and strategic support, collaboration, and education.


To provide high-quality evidence-based education and training to interdisciplinary behavioral health rehabilitation professionals and community educators to promote and advance the science and practice of behavioral health and wellness.



To develop and strengthen national and international collaborations with researchers, providers, advocates, and individuals living with mental illness to address behavioral health challenges across geographically, socioeconomically, and culturally diverse populations.

We are excited about the opportunity to bring new members to ACRM and expand the presence of behavioral health researchers within ACRM. If you would like to make an easy, positive contribution to ACRM in 2021, consider supporting and joining the ACRM Behavior Health Networking Group.

This group will provide a much needed space for behavioral health clinicians and researchers to gather and collaborate with like-minded, yet specialized health care and research colleagues across ACRM communities to improve the lives of people living with behavioral health and participation challenges.While behavioral health cross-cutting and germane to other ACRM communities, this networking group provides a distinct niche in its behavioral health emphasis, a clearly visible component of our global landscape today.
