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.   

Additional training sessions will be offered in 2023. If you would like to be on our list for updates, please email:
