Community Education Seminars

MaineStay Youth & Family Services and Chicago Behavioral Hospital (CBH) have partnered together to provide free community education seminars in order to share important information regarding key issues facing our community today. Although these seminars are applicable for a general audience, licensed professionals are encouraged to attend as well. Continuing education units (CEUs) are offered for free to social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses.

MaineStay and CBH host 4 evening community education seminars along with 6 morning professional development workshops each year featuring engaging and knowledgeable speakers on a variety of relevant topics such as parenting strategies, bullying, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and mental health concerns. Events are held at the Maine Township Town Hall located at 1700 Ballard Road in Park Ridge, unless otherwise noted.
