Upcoming Webinars

Writing for Social Media Engagement
The University of Minnesota College of Continuing Education
March 14, 2017                 12-1pm
Social media is an amazing, rapidly growing jungle of platforms, each alive with possibilities. And the expanding quantity of “expert” opinions can be overwhelming. The most common questions we hear are: What platforms should I stick with? Whose opinions are worth my attention? Where and how should I invest my limited time and efforts? What best practices should I be following? Am I behind or up to speed with the use of automation?

Stepping Up: Conducting Timely Mental Health Screening and Assessment in Jails
National Association of Counties (NACo)
April 2, 2017                       2-3:15pm
To reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in jail, counties need to have a clear and accurate understanding of the prevalence of these disorders within their jail populations. This requires universal screening of every person booked into jail for mental illnesses, as well as other behavioral health needs, such as substance use. On this webinar, a national expert will provide an overview of key strategies from the Six Questions report for effectively and consistently identifying people with mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders in county jails and how to appropriately share this information. Then, county officials will share how they have implemented screening and assessment processes in their jails and discuss the benefits of these tools.
