Sheppard Pratt – the nation’s largest private, nonprofit provider of mental health, substance use, special education, developmental disability, and social services – is proud to offer a FREE continuing education program for clinical professionals.

We strive to provide psychiatric education that advances clinical knowledge, enhances competence and performance, and improves outcomes for people with psychiatric disorders.

Our breadth of educational offerings relates to the management of psychiatric disorders and issues of behavioral health. Because psychiatric disorders have profound somatic effects, and medical illnesses have profound effects on the brain, we offer free, accredited programming addressing: 

  • Systems-based change
  • Mental/somatic co-morbidities and their effects on health
  • Health outcomes
  • Quality of life, function, and ability to work
  • Advances in neurobiology
  • Clinical developments related to underlying drug treatment of psychiatric disorders
  • And more

Our primary audience includes physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and marriage and family therapists in all practice settings and other primary care clinicians who treat behavioral health and neuropsychiatric disorders.

Our lectures and webinars are forums that link evidence-based medicine to both recent scientific advances and to challenges facing clinical researchers and practitioners. Activities focus on the mechanism of disease, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, as well as highlighting new frontiers for scientific focus.
