Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disorders in which psychosis may occur, disruptive behavior disorders (including AD/HD), and eating disorders.
Space is limited to 30 participants therefore registration is required. Training is FREE compliments of the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Union County and includes participant workbook and a three-year certification.
