The Wisconsin Public Psychiatry Network Teleconference (WPPNT) is sponsored by the Department of Health Services, Division of Care and Treatment Services, and UW-Madison, Department of Psychiatry.
WPPNT is a professional development series that supports efforts to have a workforce of practitioners that believes clients should be at the center of their health, treatment, and recovery. The teleconference aims to disseminate big ideas and practical information to a diverse network of providers, consumers, family members, and other interested community members.
All are welcome to participate free of charge. Participants typically have professional roles supporting individuals living with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders. The WPPNT provides needed ongoing education opportunities for a variety of fields including social work, nursing, psychiatry, certified peer specialists, counselors, and therapists. It reaches an audience of over 1,000 people each session. Sessions are held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. every other Thursday.
The teleconference system often reaches capacity. The teleconference system allows for 300 phone lines to join. Listening to the presentation with others is encouraged. Each listener is encouraged to register, but it is not required.
Continuing education hours (CEH) are available. Everyone who is interested is receiving a CEH must complete an evaluation. A link to the online evaluation form is posted with the handouts for the teleconference.
