Overview

  • How do we promote mental health and inclusive support with people who all think and act in unique ways?
  • How does the social climate influence what is considered mental illness and disability?
  • How do we focus on the things that really matter to people and make sure we are not contributing to the oppression of vulnerable populations?

Take the opportunity to explore these questions by going beyond basic ethical rules and regulations to explore a less discussed aspect of cultural diversity. Neurodiversity, the biological fact that all human brains are different, is critical to consider when providing inclusive community-based supports that promote the health and wellness of vulnerable populations and communities. This session will uncover new understanding, conversations, and ways to support individuals with brain and body differences.

This training qualifies for CUs.
