ACL funded Link Center Announces Shared Learning Groups

Join Shared Learning Groups on Supports for Trauma for People With Cognitive Disabilities and Co-occurring Mental Health Conditions

January 23 & 24, 2024
The ACL-funded Link Center invites you to participate in its quarterly Shared Learning Group virtual gathering series. January’s webinars are focused on the topic of supports for trauma. These groups are an opportunity to dive into important topics and tap into your expertise and experiences related to people with cognitive disabilities, including intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), brain injury, and other disabilities, and co-occurring mental health conditions.The Link Center’s Steering Committee and project partners will lead the meetings.

There are four sessions on the same topic, each scheduled for different target audiences — people with cognitive disabilities and co-occuring mental health conditions, their families, direct support professionals, and clinical professionals. Please register for the session most relevant to you. Registration is required, and sessions are limited to 300 participants.

Live captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided during all live webinars.

Contact with any questions.
