Mental Health First

Mental Health First uses the core conditions of person centred therapy as guiding values to create a base programming model that inherently promotes mental wellness. It is person centred and an excellent resource to guide professional practice in service and program delivery that has a positive lasting effect on mental health outcomes.


For those of you working directly in front line service delivery:

 You will be shown a way to care for people that harnesses the compassionate worker’s heart, your heart, and turns it into profoundly deep and effective work practices that help people find meaning, self-worth and lasting positive change. The added benefit is that you will also learn ways to manage your own mental health at work, ways to promote the self awareness that leads to successful co-regulation, and ultimately to prevent caregiver burnout. It is Attachment Based and Trauma Informed with particular attention paid to both skills toward a healthy co-regulating caregiver and program. 

 

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST CORE VALUES 


EMPATHY: Listen + Understand Before we act.

We listen to learn what they are experiencing as they are experiencing it. What is feels like to them! What is interesting about it to them! What they want! What they need! What it means to them!

Caregiver challenge - TO EMPTY ONESELF TO RECEIVE ANOTHER

 

UNCONDITIONALITY: Recognize the inherent + infinite worth of every person including yourself.

All behaviour (no matter how challenging) is understood as the youth’s best effort to move towards the good thing that really matters to them.

Caregiver challenge - TO LOVE WITHOUT LIMITS

 

CONGRUENCE: Speaking with Truth + Humility.

We are willing and able to recognize and own our responses. We act from our best self in the moment as we are able. We are clear, transparent and trustworthy.

Caregiver challenge - TO KNOW, LOVE AND ACCEPT THYSELF

Youth Centred Training

We will break down the three cornerstone ideas of person centred relational helping in a way that will direct workers with specific ways to think, understand, and interact that will lead to mental wellness in the people we serve. Following these values leads to greater attunement and creates healthy attachment to promote the healing of attachment trauma without ever addressing it directly. We explain and simplify Polyvagal Theory, and teach a simple awareness tool to use to understand and guide your professional interactions. The entire training is trauma informed, and the presence and challenges in dealing with trauma triggered behaviours will be examined with tangible ways to support positive outcomes.


This training views the helping relationship initially as a co-regulating relationship. It will explain the features of a co-regulating relationship, the benefits as well as the expectations of the caregiver to promote co-regulation. When co-regulating is occurring, this program teaches how to create person centred goals that lead to person centred outcomes and successful service delivery.

So the first three days go specifically into Empathy, Unconditionality, and Congruence as key values which guide professional services that lead directly to mental wellness. Day four is spent focussing on person centred goals, ideas, outcomes, and successful service delivery. On day five we review the key concepts from the first four days. We then look directly at the way these values and ensuing professional services promote mental wellness, and how mental health challenges are addressed from this context.


One of the things that I am most excited about is a section that I call Care Giver Challenges. At the end of each day of training time is designated to supporting the care giver both in managing their own mental health and to promote the self awareness needed to successfully enter a co-regulating relationship. The afternoon on day five is spent looking at ways to appreciate the successes of our work, ways to deepen our ability to witness growth and change, and ways to focus on our goals, dreams and hopes for our work going forward.
