Training Overview Description

Mental Health & Developmental Disabilities ECHO offers a virtual network of real-time access to experienced experts in the field of mental health for people with developmental disabilities. Through the use of a hub and spoke model, MHDD ECHO gives participants the opportunity to take an active role in rich dialogue with the hub team (subject matter experts) and with their fellow spokes (participants) in an interdisciplinary teaching and learning environment. Each session includes a brief lecture, deidentified case presentation, and open discussion facilitated by the hub team. The Fall 2019 MHDD hub team includes a psychologist, a clinician, an applied behavior analyst, a parent, and self advocate guests with personal experience. CMEs and NASW CEUs are available at no cost to participants.
