     The Substance Use and Mental Health Leadership Council of RI (SUMHLC) offers training opportunities on a wide variety of topics for individuals who are either working towards or renewing a mental health, substance abuse, or social work certification or license.  Our classes are also open to those who may be interested in learning more about a particular topic or a career in the behavioral health field. Face-to-face instructor-led trainings are offered throughout the year and are listed below.  New classes are added frequently so check back often!
