MaineStay and CBH to Offer Free Professional Workshops and Community Education Events
February 29, 2016 — Maine Township's MaineStay Youth & Family Services and Chicago Behavioral Hospital (CBH) have partnered together to provide free professional development workshops and free community education seminars. Continuing education units (CEUs) will also be offered for free to licensed professionals such as social workers, counselors, family therapists, psychologists, and nurses. MaineStay and CBH plan on hosting 6-8 events per year featuring engaging and knowledgeable speakers on a variety of relevant topics related to mental health, clinical treatment strategies, and common family concerns. Events will be held at the Maine Township Town Hall in Park Ridge.
To help them plan these events to best suit the needs of the community, they are conducting a brief online survey that will take less than one minute to complete. Those who complete the survey will be eligible to win one of three $25 gift cards. The survey is available at www.mainetownship.com/survey.
"Through this partnership with Chicago Behavioral Hospital, we will be able to offer expanded services to serve the needs of our local community," says MaineStay Director Richard Lyon. "I am grateful to CBH for their financial support and interest in helping to further our mission."
