The Mental Health and 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.
The Spring 2023 MHDD ECHO will increase participant knowledge about MHDD-related topics including communication, person-centeredness, and trauma-informed care while providing guidance on how to adapt current practices to patients and clients who experience MHDD. Sessions are led by a subject matter expert Hub Team which includes a psychologist, a clinician, an applied behavior analyst, and a parent. Each session includes a brief lecture, deidentified case presentation, and facilitated open discussion.
