For many young adults living with a mental health condition (such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or schizophrenia), it can be difficult to keep up with your job. Do you find it challenging to:
- Stay organized
- Remember things
- Manage your time
- Follow directions
- Get to work on time?
The main purpose of the Tools for Work Success Study is to determine which of two approaches is most effective in helping young adults, ages 18 to 30 years old with mental health conditions, develop skills around focus, memory, planning/time management, and problem solving for work.
This self-paced training course provides foundational information about trauma-informed outreach and engagement strategies, approaches, and service delivery models.

This course is approved for 3.0 CEUs from the National Association of Social Workers.
Course Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the need for trauma-informed care across outreach and engagement efforts and services.
- Identify the different purposes and types of outreach that are provided in response to homelessness.
- Describe key skills for engaging with people experiencing homelessness in a trauma-informed manner.
