This training is open to anyone in a helping profession. Continuing education unit (CEU) information below. Registration required.

If you work with people struggling with substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health, then unconscious biases, stereotypes, and stigmas can influence the service you provide—even when you have the best intentions.

Free and open to everyone who interacts with people experiencing mental health and substance use difficulties, this training is especially relevant to helpers—anyone working in law enforcement, medical, behavioral health, or social services fields.

Anti-bias training for medical professionals regarding SUDs and mental health is an important step toward ensuring equitable and effective healthcare for people struggling with addiction. This type of training aims to minimize the stigma that often influences the treatment and care of people with SUDs.

Learning outcomes:

  • Identify 2 biases common to well-intended professionals working with people experiencing behavioral health or mental health-related symptoms.
  • Practice using 2 evidence-based tools that help you mitigate this personal and organizational bias in your work, enabling you to provide the best services or treatment to those who need it.
