BOZEMAN - Montana health care providers can earn continuing education contact hours online via a series of recorded webinars from Montana State University.

The webinars cover a variety of mental health topics and are designed for non-mental health primary care providers who offer mental health care in their practices.
Each webinar is worth two continuing education contact hours for nurses, pharmacists, social workers, professional counselors, licensed addiction counselors, and marriage and family therapists.
The professional development opportunity is offered by MSU's College of Nursing and Extended University.

Topics cover conditions that often present in the primary care setting: diagnostics; pharmacotherapy; depressive disorders; anxiety disorders; bipolar disorders; cognitive disorders in the older adult; and managing neurobehavioral crises. Each webinar is led by a licensed health care professional.
Registration opens March 19 and ends April 2. Providers may access the webinars any time between March 19 and May 16. Each webinar lasts about 2 hours. The cost is $25 each. This is the last time that the recorded webinars will be offered.

For course descriptions and to register, visit and look for the webinars under "mental health."
