Education & Training

We offer continuing education trainings related to children’s behavioral health for physicians, educators, other professionals, and caregivers in Lancaster County. And we host a bi-annual youth summit for high school students, exploring different topics of mental wellness.

NEW! Rise Above Youth Summit

Rise Above: Eliminating Stigma in Youth Mental Wellness is a 4-week youth summit where high school students visit our office for a series of sessions, with community professionals and artists with a passion for mental health. Our goal is to educate and empower students with knowledge on what mental health is, what resources are available to them and how to express their emotions through different art forms.

We hosted our first inaugural youth summit during the fall of 2022 in partnership with The Hood Hippie Love Yourself, a local clothing brand created by two McCaskey High School alumni.

Education & Training

We partner with the IU13 for the Medical – Education Coalition, bringing Continuing Education training to school administrators and primary care providers each spring and fall. This coalition focuses on connecting schools and primary care providers to better support and integrate youth wellness services in Lancaster County.

Each month, our Mental Health Clinical Fellowship also supplies one hour of continuing education training for supervisors and Fellows taking part in that program. We partner with Millersville University School of Social Work for National Association of Social Work (NASW) credits.

How helpful is it?

CME’s are helpful in facilitating lifelong learning amongst physicians so that their practices reflect the best medical care for their patients and community. The goal is to help physicians enhance their performances at their respective practices. They are crucial to the prosperity of health care professionals in the ever-changing framework of the medical industry. They help to increase employability and competiveness with the focus being personal and professional development.
