Training Institute

March 12, 2020: Special Health Announcement

As the situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, the Sweetser Training Institute is doing its part to reduce gatherings capable of spreading the virus. To that end we are canceling all events through March 31. Those include: March 20 (Clinical Supervision) and March 27 (Bereavement: Supporting Individuals, Children, and Families). When it is deemed prudent to reschedule the workshops we will contact those of you who were registered with the new dates. In the meantime, keep your friends, family and yourselves safe and healthy by following the recommendations being shared by healthcare agencies and professionals.

The foremost provider of mental health training in Maine, Sweetser Training Institute’s continuing education courses and clinical workshops help psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, social workers, counselors, and other allied professionals all over the state better support patient mental health. In fact, almost 800 mental health professionals and community members received mental health training and earned contact hours at Sweetser in 2018.

The Sweetser Training Institute sets the standard.

Sweetser’s mental health training institute provides recovery focused, trauma informed continuing education courses grounded in evidence-based practice from compassionate, ethical instructors. We honor diversity and inclusivity. And while we offer most of our mental health training in Brunswick and Saco, we can tailor trainings and workshops to your organization and present custom courses onsite. Our training makes promising futures possible.
