  • Education Development Center
  • American Psychological Association
  • American Psychiatric Association
  • National Association of Social Workers

What We Offer:

Building on the previously funded Mental Health Care Provider Education (MHCPE) projects at the American Psychiatric Foundation, American Psychological Association, and National Association of Social Workers, the Center brings together experts in the field to provide training and curated, customized resources designed to build capacity within the mental health workforce to address the unique needs of consumers affected by HIV and AIDS. This includes offering online and in-person training to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and allied health professionals such as primary care physicians, nurses, and many more.
