The intersection of learning and practice

Professional Development Seminars

Believing that sharing knowledge freely advances our profession and improves mental health care for all, Turning Point Academy serves as a hub of thought leadership and professional development for students and practitioners from within and outside our organization.

As one of the very few community mental health centers in our region to offer continuing education so broadly, we’re gratified that these engaging and practical experiences can help our colleagues fulfill their professional development goals and continuing education requirements.
