Envision:You LGBTQ+ Behavioral Health Provider Training Program


LGBTQ+ individuals experience higher rates of mental health disparities and often experience troubling encounters when mental health providers do not fully understand or appreciate the concerns that stem from being a part of a marginalized community. To address these needs, Envision:You developed a multi-level training program that can be delivered online or in-person to address implicit and explicit biases that exist among behavioral health practitioners that hinder so many in their recovery process. The Envision:You program is designed to help behavioral health professionals develop new skills and gain critical knowledge to enhance the delivery of quality, culturally relevant services and identify affirming behavioral health interventions for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Envision:You is offering all CPA members 25% off of all training courses in their catalog. You can register for the training at envisionyoubhptp.talentlms.com. Use the code ‘CPA25’ for 25% off when purchasing the training.

 Thanks to a grant from the Colorado Behavioral Health Administration Envision:You is also able to provide free and discounted training through the next fiscal year to providers and health care organizations that qualify. Fill out the interest form here if you are interested in this opportunity.

 Any provider who completes Level 1 and Level 2 of the training also has the opportunity to take one of our population-specific modules at no additional cost, focused on working with one of the following populations: Transgender & Gender Diverse Communities, LGBTQ+ Youth, LGBTQ+ Older Adults, and LGBTQ+ Communities of Color.

For more information you can visit the program page on the Envision:You website at envision-you-training.org. You can contact Marie Hafner at [email protected] with any questions.

Thank you for your commitment to serving the needs of our LGBTQ+ clients!
