Mental Health Provider Training Program

OODH is launching a new training webinar for mental health providers on offering accessible health care to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).  

The goal of the training webinar is to improve mental health care access of adults with I/DD in Oregon. Mental health care professionals who successfully complete the training will: 

  • gain skills in effective communication with adults with I/DD 

  • recognize personal pre-existing assumptions and biases 

  • understand disability-related disparities  

Webinars will feature self-advocate trainers who will share lived experiences, and resources for practice will be shared throughout the session. Participants will also have an opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with the trainers to receive recommendations for providing accessible mental health care.

Our next training session is scheduled for Friday, May 31st, from 12 PM to 1:30 PM.
