    Mental Health Training for the Legal Community

    The Office of Forensic Services is interested in partnering with Community Services Board (CSB) staff to provide mental health training to members of the legal system. We anticipate that the request for training would originate at the local level given the relationships that CSBs have formed with their local judiciary, public defender offices, Commonwealth Attorneys, court clerks, magistrates and others. If CSBs are interested in partnering with the DBHDS, we would provide staff to support local training efforts. We have developed modules in anticipation that the requests for training will vary from 1 hour to 4 hours and will vary in terms of topical interest. We have received one (1) CLE credit hour approval from the Virginia State Bar for each of the four (4) modules.
