Cypress, CA Medcom, a leading national provider of healthcare education materials, is pleased to announce the release of its new series, Mental Health Assessment Tools, a collection of 40 training DVDs featuring real-world scenarios healthcare professionals encounter every day.

The medical videos also demonstrate critical skills such as setting limits, negotiating with patients, properly phrasing questions, and diffusing anger. Many of the assessments include recommendations on next steps for providing patient treatment.

"The release of this dynamic video series comes at a time when serious mental health policy discussions are taking place across the country," said Michael Zoradi, President and CEO of Medcom.

  • This is the second series in a library of DVDs that Medcom plans to release this year, which will cover a wide variety of mental health issues.

    "Video learning programs are a highly effective way to provide clinical training for mental health professionals. Studies show that video learning is intellectually stimulating, encourages cognitive learning and knowledge retention, and helps learners gain essential clinical skills," said Zoradi.

    Each DVD in the Mental Health Assessment Tools series is individually priced, enabling mental health providers to choose the most relevant programs for their needs. These videos will soon be available for online streaming as well.
