Instructors are the key to spreading Mental Health First Aid across the country. Instructors are individuals certified to teach the course in their communities and beyond.

4 Reasons to Become a
Mental Health First Aid Instructor

1. Connect
    Bring your community together

2. Advocate
    Reduce negative attitudes about mental illnesses

3. Educate
    Build mental health literacy

4. Lead
    Show others how they can help

Instructors are on the frontlines of the program and train people in their communities in Mental Health First Aid. Certified Adult and Youth Instructors are required to teach the course at least three times per year.

Instructors also create, market, and coordinate their classes while supporting their learners along the way. Instructors teach from a national curriculum, tailor discussions to their participants, and compile a list of local resources for help.

Through local community centers, volunteer pre-service teachers provide each parent with a comprehensive math education.

These parents then learn how to teach their children math from pre-kindergarten onward.

Sustainability is achieved when the parent-student becomes the parent-educator for their community center.

Parents are empowered to advocate for their children’s education within the home and their schools and promote math within the entire community.

Training
Individuals coming in contact with survivors of torture find there is an enormous need for training, especially pro-bono professionals.

CST provides training on an ongoing basis, responding to clients and community needs as they arise.  In an effort to reduce the wait list, CST trains mainstream licensed providers whose clientele may include refugees and immigrants, thus helping them identify survivors, and improve their skills, and provide strength based, trauma-informed care.

CST provides education and workshops for refugee community leaders, attorneys, educators, physicians, and the immigrant community, on an ongoing basis.

 

Educational opportunities through CST’s social services

Many survivor of torture clients are underemployed. CST’s Adam Patrick Bratcher (APB) Education Program identifies cohorts of clients who want to pursue college or certificates. The program establishes a single point of entry through the highest-level community college contact.  

CST board members’ career-long, national experience in community college leadership eases access into community college programs that lead to jobs with the potential of earning a sustainable wage. This referral system to free college or certification programs, as a part of our APB Education Program, has a far-reaching impact on clients, helping them to build employable skills and earn a living, self-sufficiency, cultural competency, English skills, and generates hope for a better future for their family.

Community perception is positive regarding the quality and the innovation of CST’s responses to clients’ challenges.

NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps audience members learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental health condition.

NAMI Ending the Silence presentations typically include two leaders: One who shares an informative presentation, and a young adult with a mental health condition who shares their journey of recovery.

Audience members are welcome to ask questions in order to gain an understanding of an often-misunderstood topic. Through dialogue, we can help grow the movement to end stigma.

Trauma impacts a developing brain. The resulting behavioral, academic, and relational challenges need intervention for children to grow into emotionally healthy adults. Without a deep understanding of how abuse, neglect, grief, and loss affect children, efforts will likely fall short.

Our staff, trained and experienced in using best-in-class trauma education, is passionate about sharing this knowledge with anyone wanting to serve children and adults who have experienced trauma.

LPC Supervision for LPC Interns:

I currently offer private clinical supervision in accordance with Texas state licensing board requirements (off-site).

I do not employ Interns in my practice but will mentor those interested in having a private practice upon full licensure as part of clinical supervision.

I only provide clinical supervision for supervisees who work with adults in individual or group counseling modalities (not children, adolescents, couples, or family).

Click here for more information

Clinical supervision includes 

24/7 coverage of the temporary license with my full license (i.e., whenever an LPC Intern is working as a counselor). In other words, I carry limited liability for the practice of LPC Interns that I supervise.

Therefore, I do require strict adherence to meeting weekly (I offer web-cam supervision as an option for weekly face-to-face meetings, although no more than half of all supervision meetings may be in this format).

I have authored a helpful one-page guide to finding a supervisor available at LPCReview.com.

For a summary of my theoretical lens of practice, please visit my Professional Philosophy page.

The monthly charge for my clinical supervision services is $300 per month.
