About this trauma-informed clinical training

Southeast Asian populations have had steady growth in the U.S., and specifically within Minnesota’s Ramsey and Hennepin counties. For professionals and community members working with Southeast Asians who have experienced war and the struggles of resettlement, language and culture do not have to become barriers to mental health or substance use treatment, even when co-occurring. Understanding historical and cultural contexts and recognizing the impacts of trauma are essential to meeting the unique needs of your Southeast Asian clients.

Join Nway Linn, Treatment Consultant of Recovery Services with Wilder Community Mental Health and Wellness, for this FREE 3-hour trauma-informed clinical training eLearning workshop focused on helping you help your Southeast Asian clients who have mental health and substance use challenges.
