Continuing Education, Community & Alumni Relations (CECAR)

Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences' Office of Continuing Education | Community and Alumni Relations. Our small office handles a wide variety of events, programming and campaigns for the Department.

Continuing Education Events

The Department puts on bimonthly Psychiatry Grand Rounds as well as continuing education events for mental health providers year round. Most events are conveniently located on our downtown Charleston campus or other nearby Lowcountry venues. Whether you need credit to maintain your licensure or are interested in a current topic we offer, we hope you can join us at one of our events.

Community Events and Fundraisers

According to NIH, 1 in 5 adults in America will experience mental health issues and nearly 60% of adults with a mental health illness did not receive mental health services in the previous year. We are dedicated to raising awareness and funds for mental health in our community, with our efforts supporting a variety of clinical, patient and research initiatives throughout our 12 divisions. Will you join us as we take a stance and shine a light on the importance of mental health?
