Webinar: The Nurses’ Role in Treating People with Persistent and Severe Mental Illness

Webinar: The Nurses’ Role in Treating People with Persistent and Severe Mental Illness

Severe and persistent mental illness touches every part of a person’s life.  It  impacts overall health, relationships, activities of daily living and overall quality of life. The mental health treatment community is learning more about evidence-based practices that result in increased quality of life and improved recovery trajectories.  The foundation of mental health treatment is a multidisciplinary treatment team.  The more we all know about one another’s professions, the better we can serve the people who live with mental illnesses.  We will discuss nursing roles within mental health treatment and novel approaches to treatment with a multidisciplinary team.

Webinar: Mental illness 101: Childhood trauma and mental health impacts

Webinar: Mental illness 101: Childhood trauma and mental health impacts

Trauma ― specifically trauma experienced as children or adolescents ― can significantly impact individuals across their entire lives. In fact, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (@NCTSN) notes that survivors of childhood trauma are more likely to have long-term health problems or are at higher risk to die at an earlier age than their peers. With so many walking wounded souls in our midst, people are starting to ask, “How can I make a difference?” Our July webinar will focus on this important factor impacting many people who are struggling with mental illness concerns – untreated childhood trauma. Our goals are to equip local faith and community leaders with the signs and symptoms of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and provide the proven resources they can incorporate into their congregational and community outreach efforts.

Webinar: Youth suicide prevention: Responding to the crisis

Webinar: Youth suicide prevention: Responding to the crisis

Youth suicide attempts are on the rise and now affecting children at even younger ages. In 2015, 17.7% of students reported that they seriously considered attempting suicide according to the CDC.  Another study publish in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology found that “among young people, rates of suicidal thoughts, plans and attempts all increased significantly, and in some cases more than doubled, between 2008 and 2017.”

The prevention of youth suicide in schools has been addressed in many ways since the field began in the 1980s. One model that has stood the test of time is the approach taken by Hazelden Lifelines, which looks at the school from the perspective of a competent community where all members play a role in the prevention process. A common denominator in all components of the Lifelines model is that everyone in the school – from administrators, faculty and staff to parents and students – share the same perspective and language about suicide and clearly understand their identified roles.

This webinar will explain:

  • the language about suicide
  • the school-based definition of suicide
  • the roles that enable a school to develop a comprehensive and best-practice suicide prevention strategy.

Webinar: Setting up for sustainability: The what and how behind a successful sustainability plan

Webinar: Setting up for sustainability: The what and how behind a successful sustainability plan

Are you planning to sustain your program or coalition, but are struggling with where to start? Have you tried to sustain, but the process did not go as planned? Are you ready to set your team up for sustainability success? Setting up for sustainability success starts with understanding what sustainability is, what factors affect it, and how it applies to your project. This webinar will outline the key components that make up sustainability and the factors that affect sustainability. These factors include funding/resources, but we know that while funding may be necessary, it is not sufficient to achieve sustainability. This webinar focuses directly on the myriad of other factors that affect sustainability success and how you can strategically use this information to begin developing a sustainability plan to address them.

The science and power of hope

The Science and Power of Hope with Professor Chan M. Hellman, Ph.D., Director - The Hope Research Center will present on current research on the application of hope theory.  

Hope is an important protective factor that enables students and families to thrive. It is also an important coping resource to vicarious trauma and burnout among education and service providers.

Webinar: Establishing Peer-to-Peer Services for Adult Latinos in Recovery

Webinar: Establishing Peer-to-Peer Services for Adult Latinos in Recovery

“Recovery Community Support Programs” were originally funded by the federal government and offered peer-to-peer support in order to assist those in recovery find a place to be assessed and referred to supportive services critical to the sustainment of log-term recovery. Programs became a meeting place were the main goal was to support those in recovery in all their needs to secure continued sobriety. As these programs grew, they began to become indispensable particularly for those coming out of the criminal justice system. Like many new efforts in program methodologies the peer-to-peer efforts failed to gravitate to the Latino/Hispanic addiction treatment efforts. There are many cultural and historical reasons for this, but, despite the barriers, there have been a few communities that have broadened their addiction treatment program offerings to include recovery peer-to-peer efforts. This VLC session will explore the developmental conditions that make these programs possible, the service components of the programs and the linguistic and policy considerations that make, or, will make these programs culturally appropriate.

Webinar: Understanding the Role of Policy in Preventin g Substance Misuse

Webinar: Understanding the Role of Policy in Preventin g Substance Misuse

When successfully implemented, policy strategies can produce widespread adoption of behaviors and attitudes that promote health and reduce substance misuse. They have far-reaching effects, can be relatively inexpensive and easy to sustain, and can be successfully used to reinforce programs directed at individuals.

Yet ironically, policy is one of the prevention strategies least utilized by our field, particularly at the local level. Policy development can seem complicated and/or perceived as the purview of state and federal governments and, because policies take time to develop and produce results, they can feel less concrete than other prevention strategies.

This two-part, introductory webinar is designed to help you get past these barriers—both real and perceived—by presenting clear steps can take to select and implement policies that produce lasting change. Specifically, we will outline a process for identifying and enhancing the community conditions that promote policy adoption and review best practices for supporting policy implementation.  In addition: 

  • Part 1 will examine specific policies to prevent youth alcohol use and prescription drug misuse.
  • Part 2 will examine policies to prevent youth tobacco and marijuana use, with a focus on preventing vaping.

During both sessions, participants will have an opportunity to pose questions and discuss common challenges to leading policy change efforts, including selecting appropriate policy strategies and building local support for policy passage and implementation.

Webinar: Recognizing and managing teen anxiety

Webinar: Recognizing and managing teen anxiety

This webinar is for parents, guardians, youth workers, and caring adults interested in teen mental health.  Nearly one in three adolescents meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18. Sadly, 80% of youth diagnosed with anxiety are not getting the treatment they need. Caring adults can make a difference by learning to recognize the signs and intervening before anxiety takes over a teen’s life or leads to depression.  

In this webinar, Lisa M. Schab, LCSW, a practicing psychotherapist and international best-selling author, will discuss the symptoms of an anxiety disorder, anxiety management skills adults can practice with youth, and ways adults can encourage teens to be a part of choosing treatment options.

Webinar: Understanding the Role of Policy in Preventing Substance Misuse

Webinar: Understanding the Role of Policy in Preventing Substance Misuse

When successfully implemented, policy strategies can produce widespread adoption of behaviors and attitudes that promote health and reduce substance misuse. They have far-reaching effects, can be relatively inexpensive and easy to sustain, and can be successfully used to reinforce programs directed at individuals.

Yet ironically, policy is one of the prevention strategies least utilized by our field, particularly at the local level. Policy development can seem complicated and/or perceived as the purview of state and federal governments and, because policies take time to develop and produce results, they can feel less concrete than other prevention strategies.

This two-part, introductory webinar is designed to help you get past these barriers—both real and perceived—by presenting clear steps can take to select and implement policies that produce lasting change. Specifically, we will outline a process for identifying and enhancing the community conditions that promote policy adoption and review best practices for supporting policy implementation.  In addition: 

  • Part 1 will examine specific policies to prevent youth alcohol use and prescription drug misuse.
  • Part 2 will examine policies to prevent youth tobacco and marijuana use, with a focus on preventing vaping.

During both sessions, participants will have an opportunity to pose questions and discuss common challenges to leading policy change efforts, including selecting appropriate policy strategies and building local support for policy passage and implementation.
