Lyme Disease: Are You Literate? @ University of New England | Portland | Maine | United States

A training for mental health clinicians.
What do you know about Lyme disease? How does it impact your clients? How can you recognize it? How can you help? Attendees will gain information and resources on how to help the increasing number of clients afflicted with tick borne illnesses. According to the CDC over 300,000 people each year, the majority in New England, contract Lyme disease, just one of a dozen possible illnesses spread by ticks. Lyme itself can mimic a wide variety of mental health conditions ranging from bipolar, to panic disorder, to major depression, even dementia.

This training will enhance your practice abilities by increasing your awareness of the prevalence and signs of disease, including methods for supporting clients and their families through the difficult phases of treatment, symptom management, and self advocacy.
