Training programs

Linden Oaks Behavioral Health offers trainings in schools and companies or provider offices on a range of behavioral health topics. Trainings are led by a member of the Linden Oaks team—experts in the field of mental health. Presentations can be created based on the needs of staff, school or patients.

Linden Oaks staff can coordinate continuing education units (CEU’s) for professionals including: IAODAPCA (CADC), LCPC/LPC, LCSW/MSW, LMFT, and Psychologist. We can provide these trainings as a part of school institute days and/or provider lunch-and-learn presentations.
