The title of this article is not an exaggeration, but it is, nonetheless, quite telling.
For those who may not be familiar with the term, a behavioral healthcare technician (BHTS) is a technician that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions.
This is a field that is highly coveted, with job postings popping up everywhere from medical centers to Fortune 500 companies, and it’s definitely worth paying attention to.
While BHTSs are often found in the area of psychiatry, it is also important to know that behavioral health professionals do not only diagnose and treat mental health issues, they also provide counseling, education, and training to those who need them.
BHT’s can also assist in mental health care planning and implementation, and can assist with the integration of behavioral health treatment into the broader healthcare delivery system.
There are so many different types of BHTs, and they have their own unique roles.
