5150 Training

CalMHSA, in collaboration with Sutter Health, offers counties a comprehensive training on California involuntary holds and 5150 laws. This program supports county staff who work in multiple jurisdictions with a single training that is updated monthly to reflect the changing landscape. 

The training is accessible in two formats: 

  • Live monthly sessions: A three-hour live training session conducted by Linda Garrett, Esq. 
  • Asynchronous training: A recording of the live training for 30 days post-session, offering flexibility for self-paced learning.

Participants who are LCSWs, LMFTs, LPCCs, or LEPs earn three Continuing Education Units for completion of either training format and the corresponding course evaluation.
