In-home workers face many difficulties, including working with clients with mental health conditions. Mental Health Fundamentals explores five common mental health conditions and gives staff practical guidance on how to guide clients without getting caught up in their drama. Attendees will learn about the connection between genetics, environments, and lifestyles in the development of a mental health condition; techniques to assist clients to replace maladaptive behaviors with positive ones; and skills to de-escalate clients experiencing a mental health crisis. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to understand how personal experiences impact relationships with clients experiencing mental health conditions, be able to identify the diagnostic criteria for five common mental health diagnoses, and able to recognize how adverse childhood experiences affect mental health.
