Past Mental Health Committee Networking and CEU Workshops
In addition to planning workshops for mental health providers to earn required continuing education units (CEUs), the SCC Mental Health Committee also sponsors a networking lunch for local providers to hear from our annual speakers prior to the evening events open to the public. Speakers typically share a more clinical version of their evening presentation and open up a dialogue with attendees.
