CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Aug. 18 Introducing BehavioralHealthCentral.com, a powerful new Web portal dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of the behavioral healthcare industry's many diverse sectors. BehavioralHealthCentral.com (formerly BHCJournal.com) provides up-to-the-minute industry and clinical news, comprehensive resources and tools, and enhanced social networking capabilities designed to bring all of the major stakeholders in behavioral healthcare - clinicians, administrators, executives, payors and patients - together in pursuit of their common goals of clinical excellence and mental wellness.

A key feature of the relaunched site is the creation of a common collaborative space where all stakeholders can combine their efforts to develop better treatment outcomes for patients. "This new genesis of our site brings everyone to the table so they all have access to similar resources and information," said Jim Miller, President of Behavioral Health Central (BHC). "It's a recognition that, in the end, we're all striving for the same thing - better treatment pathways, leading to improved outcomes for patients."

BehavioralHealthCentral.com features unique, custom articles and interviews with leading researchers, clinicians and industry thought-leaders, available nowhere else. These are posted to the site daily by a core group of experienced behavioral healthcare journalists. The site also now offers a greatly expanded array of news sources, drawing from thousands of reputable publications and journals worldwide. News is updated on the site throughout the day, with carefully selected content focused squarely on topics of relevance to behavioral healthcare.

BHC also now offers expanded opportunities for contributions and blogging by clinicians, executives and other industry professionals offering their own hands-on experiences and insights. Partnerships with some of the behavioral healthcare industry's most prominent organizations and suppliers provides access to an even wider universe of content, services and products. Another key feature of the new site is the addition of comprehensive, nationwide directories that allow professionals and consumers to quickly locate treatment facilities, therapists, vendors, drug information, association lists, and more - all on one convenient site.

Members can sign up for the BHC Daily Update, an e-newsletter that provides a capsule summary of the day's top behavioral healthcare headlines delivered direct to their inboxes each day, with links to the site's full-text articles. The new site also allows members to choose the topics they want to get regular updates on with My Daily Update.

"Our ultimate goal is to give the industry one place to go to get the information they need," said Miller. "With this new platform and dramatically enhanced capabilities, our members can now customize their interaction with the site, and select only the type of information they want to see."

The relaunched site arrives just in time to support the behavioral healthcare industry through the rapid changes that lie ahead as parity is implemented and health reform moves forward. There can be little doubt that as old stigmas and misconceptions have fallen away and mental healthcare now takes its place at the table as an equal partner, the field has come into its own. Likewise, http://www.BehavioralHealthCentral.com now gives the industry a Website it can call its own as well.
