Featured Customer of the Month 

Karen Wall is a RN (BSN, MA) with 20 years of experience working in the field of mental health. She is also a Military Veteran (US Army Maj ret), Marriage and Family Intern and Doctoral Candidate at Argosy University.

Karen shares that she uses Symptom Media’s videos as a diversified educational tool for nurses across all experience levels.” She uses the video library to teach newly licensed registered nurses about mental health and believes that Symptom Media’s Behavioral Health Film Library “is a great way for experienced nurses to review their knowledge and skills in a short, entertaining way.”  Another one of Karen’s favorite ways to use the videos is through providing education to veterans who are struggling with mental illness. 
Being able to watch the videos helps them understand their illness as an enhancement to any reading materials they receive. Many times the veteran is not able to read or listen well to a verbal or written educational resource, but they have enjoyed watching the video and being able to discuss the content with me afterwards.” She one day hopes to have Symptom Media’s library available for access in all VA hospitals “so our providers can benefit from instant, thoughtful, and accurate learning...Thank you, Symptom Media, for making my job easier!”
