What are providers saying?

"The most surprising thing I learned was all the ways that we could be incorporating tools into the clinical practice to possibly upstream and maybe even prevent the downstream mental health issues. Fantastic course!" - Amber M, NP

"My favorite part of the course was connecting the scoliosis experience to the mental health impact. The case examples were also fun/informative." -Alexis O, Clinical Psychology PsyD Student

"I really enjoyed the literature recommendations." - Penny G, LSW

"My favorite part was being able to connect face to face with Elisabetta and Megan and the other mental health workers!" - Anita A, RTCc with ACCT
