The first episode in our new series on Mental Health News Radio has our cohosts, Dave Ballenberger and Kristin Walker, exploring the topics, guests, and ideas for this show. Why is a show on the business side of Mental Healthcare important?
There is not a podcast in the world that comes close to these topics and just like any sector of healthcare - mental healthcare is a booming business. It is also unique in that discussions of profit, using the word "sales", and the downsides of this industry are rarely, if ever, spoken about.
Kristin Walker is the founder of MHNR Network and has spent the last several years working directly in the business side of mental health.
Dave Ballenberger, MSW has spent his entire career in the mental health field from working as a clinician to running a successful technology company.
