Mental Illness 101

Residential Facility Class 2 (Adult Care Facility) Operators and staff will receive 6 hours of mental health training that can apply toward the training requirement from Licensure and Certification.

The family dynamic created in group living is greatly impacted when family members have a serious mental illness. Operators and staff of residential facilities (ACF's) are the family of those living in their homes, many who are struggling with serious mental illness. Understanding the impact of these illnesses in terms of the physical, emotional and symptomatic behaviors can reduce tension in the family dynamic. This training will provide those attending with a recognition of the impact of the illness, the inability to control some behaviors and techniques to most effectively dealing with the dynamics of mental illness in their home. This training will provide information to help recognize behaviors as symptoms and to respond appropriately, will improve communications with clients by utilizing techniques offered in the training, and will create a more stable home environment as a result of increased understanding and symptom management. This is a great training for those providers and staff new to mental health or who are looking to review what they have already learned.

This 6 hour training is broken up into 3 modules (2 hours each). You will need to register only once and attend all 3 modules to receive 6 hours of mental health training for Residential Facility Class 2 licensure and certification.
