Whether you are a clinician in private practice, work in an agency, or are responsible for organizing Continuing Education opportunities for your employees, Mental Health America has options to meet your needs.
In the community
We offer CEU events for professionals at a variety of locations throughout the metropolitan area. Each seminar is 3 hours and is approved for 3.0 CEUs for social workers and psychologists. Professionals in other disciplines should consult their licensing board to ensure credits are accepted. When you sign up here for News You Can Use, you'll also receive email announcements for CEU opportunities.
At your location
If your agency or practice would like us to bring a seminar to your location for employees, the above sessions are offered for a fee of $300 each. If attendees want formal CEU credit, there is an additional charge of $15/CEU.
If your non-mental health agency, small business or corporation would like a 2-hour non-CEU training for your employees, we offer two seminars, appropriate for a wide variety of audiences. Recognizing Mental Illness provides a knowledge base that can help staff interact more effectively with clients or co-workers who experience emotional distress or clinical symptoms. Mental Health in the Workplace can help employees manage stress and incorporate skills to increase their overall mental wellness.
- Recognizing Mental Illness teaches you how to recognize the most common mental illnesses, their causes and symptoms. We’ll also provide a thorough overview of resources, available services and how to effectively encourage people to seek help. Depending upon the needs of your organization, we can also include an interactive session on escalation prevention.
- Mental Health in the Workplace explores factors in the work environment that influence employee engagement, affect workplace stress and mental health, and helps create positive change in the workplace culture, all with an eye to improving mental well-being.
