Staff Perspective - Call 988

This has included interest in flexible treatment options for insomnia disorder.

A key element in that renewal process is to review the continuing education trainings I’ve completed. As I reflect on these professional activities, it also stirs excitement about things to come. Below I will share several new and continuing initiatives within CDP. As you professionally wrap up 2021 and move into 2022, use this blog as a guide to highlight CDP events of interest.
