The rapid expansion of mobile technology infrastructure presents an opportunity to improve health and health care through text messaging. Text messaging can be a safe, clinically promising, and feasible tool to augment care for individuals with mental health concerns.

Recognizing the potential of text messaging to improve health and health care, this 2-part webinar series will review the technical and administrative requirements for the ethical and HIPAA compliant use of text messaging.
