01 July 2016, San Diego, CA The TeleMental Health Institute (TMHI) is pleased to announce its affiliate alliance with Compliancy Group (CG).

Dr. Marlene Maheu, the founder of TMHI and a pioneer in the field of telemental health, said, Dr. Maheu continued, “The Compliancy Group is the nation’s leading HIPAA compliancy service. We are honoured to have been approached by them for a number of strategic initiatives.” Maheu continued, “We are so impressed with this group and the service they have been offering that we’ve just arranged for a series of HIPAA-related webinars and other opportunities for our trainees and our community.”
