NAMI Mental Health Train the Trainer Workshop
This is a private course and registrations are not being accepted.
This is a staff development program for health care professionals who work directly with people experiencing mental illness. It's important to understand the unique challenges people and families experience when facing a mental health challenge: social isolation, complex family dynamics and the unpredictability of illness.
This program offers the tools health care professionals need to combine the medical and recovery models of care so you can better serve your clients. It's designed to help enhance the relationships you have with the person in your care and with their family.
- Recognize the traumatic impact that mental illness has on the person and the family, even in times of wellness.
- View lived experience as an important perspective that enhances the care health care professionals provide.
- Learn about the collaborative model of care and how to incorporate it into their treatment services.
- Learn the emotional stages of response to mental illness experienced by the individual and their family.
- Identify why health care professionals may want to refer families and caregivers to NAMI programs.
