The Mobile Wellness team has been busy in the community! We have been providing trainings all across central Illinois. We recently added a section to our website on the trainings we are providing. We have been partnering with Children's Home and The Hult Center for Healthy Living to expand the use of Mental Health First Aid in Central Illinois. MHFA is a national program that provides training on how to recognize and help individuals struggling with the symptoms of mental illness or substance abuse.
We are also providing training to community agencies, churches, and medical providers on how to approach individuals for behavioral change through the skill known as motivational interviewing, how to de-escalate situations, and basic education on symptoms of mental health issues and resources available in the area.
