Single Step Foundation is pleased to present the free "Innovative Approaches to Training Mental Health Service Providers for The Quality Support of LGBTQI+ People" handbook. The handbook is part of the CommonPoint project under the Erasmus+ programme and is designed for the training of mental health professionals, aiming to improve their knowledge and skills in working with LGBTQI people.

CommonPoint aims to provide innovative and easily accessible training resources for mental health professionals. The project is implemented in partnership with the European organisations Háttér Társaság, Prague Pride, LORI and Single Step.

So far, as part of the CommonPoint project, Single Step Foundation has participated in an online pilot training focused on training mental health professionals in their work with LGBTI clients, as well as a follow-up training held in Hungary in 2021. Single Step also participated in the presentation of a series of educational videos created in collaboration with the other European organisations in the project. The videos will be part of an e-learning platform in five languages that will also provide access to the free handbook.
