Upcoming Sessions


Case Managers, non-clinical and other frontline staff (i.e.: those that provide front desk services, maintenance, security, food preparation, rent collection, and recreational activities) are consistently in contact with service recipients who have a range of behavioral health needs. This training provides an overview of the experiences of people living with special needs, including mental illness, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS. It also offers information on how co-occurring disorders interact with one another and impact how persons respond to services.


Special emphasis is placed on understanding staff roles in supporting persons with special needs and managing everyday problematic situations. Well-trained clinical staff matched with well-trained non-clinical staff makes for an ideal team that work collaboratively to provide optimal services.
