This is an 8-hour course that provides a 3-year certification. First, you will work through about two hours’ worth of content in an online learning system at your own pace and on your own schedule. Then, you’ll join us for a day of in-person learning, discussion, and educational exercises that will help you feel more confident in putting your knowledge to use. Some topics that we discuss in this course include anxiety, depression, diagnoses involving psychosis, reactions to traumatic events, substance use including alcohol and opioids, aggressive behavior, eating disorders, and more.
This course is valued at $170/person. We are able to offer this course on a sliding scale thanks to the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management and our instructor donating a portion of her time.


Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in these events do not necessarily represent those of the City of Portland. These trainings have been made possible in part by a grant from the Portland Bureau Emergency Management.
