Behavioral Health Regional Training for Fresno County

SCLC co-hosted a one-day Behavioral Health Regional Training training with Fresno County Wednesday, October 16, 2019.

This all day training session, held at the Radisson Hotel Fresno Conference Center, discussed how to advance tobacco-free policies within mental health facilities and promote systems change in the treatment of nicotine dependence.

Presentations covered Medi-Cal Billing, Motivational Interviewing, the CA Smoker's Helpline, Wellness Partner Presentation from the Office of Gambling, and Real Talk: a Q&A panel from experts who have taken their facilities tobacco-free.

Participants were enthusiastic as they created an action plan and learned how to create successful working partnerships between key stakeholders to achieve sustainable outcomes.
