The ACL-funded Mental Health & Developmental Disabilities National Training Center is launching a Fall 2019 ECHO virtual learning network. The MHDD ECHO gives participants the opportunity to take an active role in dialogue with subject matter experts and with their fellow participants.
Fall 2019 sessions will be held every other Thursday from September 12 to December 19. Each session includes a brief lecture, deidentified case presentation, and open discussion. Experts include 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.
The series seeks to increase knowledge about:
- Prevalence of co-occurring mental health issues among people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
- Evidence-based practices for testing, assessment, and treatment
- Strategies for mental health professionals
- The experience of individuals and families
