FY23 Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities (MHDD) ECHO
Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities (MHDD) ECHO offers a virtual network of real-time access to experienced experts in the field of mental health for people with developmental disabilities. Through the use of a hub and spoke model, MHDD ECHO gives participants the opportunity to take an active role in rich dialogue with the hub team and with their peers in an interdisciplinary teaching and learning environment.

The Spring 2023 MHDD ECHO curriculum will increase participant knowledge about MHDD-related topics including communication, person-centeredness, and trauma-informed care while providing guidance on how to adapt current practices to patients and clients who experience MHDD. Sessions are led by a subject matter expert Hub Team which includes a psychologist, a clinician, an applied behavior analyst, and a parent. Each session includes a brief lecture, deidentified case presentation, and open discussion facilitated by an interdisciplinary team.

Who should join this ECHO?
Mental health care providers, disability service providers, social workers, educators and students of related disciplines, parents with related professional experience.
