Healthcare professionals in all settings work regularly with patients living with mental health conditions. There is an unmet need for relevant training in behavioral health skills, at a time when these skills are more vital than ever. In these interactive live webinars, experts in behavioral health provide training in de-escalation, suicide prevention, ethical and cultural considerations in mental health, and other skills for use in both inpatient and outpatient settings.


I was impressed with the variety of speakers and experience and I think it was well-oriented and matched my own personal goals for improvement in my practice as a Public Health Nurse.” 

The speakers you all selected were SO excellent. The topics that were discussed are so relevant to us more than ever. Money well spent! I have enjoyed this session.”
