Lara Gregorio, LCSW and Director of Clinical Initiatives at 7 Cups of Tea, the largest global mental health delivery system, will explore gaps in our current behavioral healthcare system, how technology, peer support and innovation can serve to dramatically expand access to care. Imagine if care was available on demand, for free, anonymously, in any language? Imagine if quality care was at your fingertips? Imagine a healthcare system built on learning how to best help people, while offering compassion and empowerment? Technology is available now to alter the way we’ve been delivering services, to serve as a complement to existing systems, and to truly bridge online/offline care, creating a comprehensive network of support. Lara Gregorio received her master’s degree from Smith College School for Social Work in 2005, and has since been a therapist in diverse settings including inpatient psychiatry, community clinics, college counseling centers & in private practice. She joined 7 Cups, 2 1/2 years ago to carry out her passion for finding solutions to help people access the services they deserve.
