Mind Your Mind Mental Health Training Opportunities
Mental health is one of the Cobb Collaborative’s main strategic initiatives to improve outcomes for all people and families in our community. Everyone is impacted by their mental health—regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, age, gender, or sexual orientation. Our Mind Your Mind mental health initiative exists to raise awareness, promote resiliency and reduce stigma around mental health.
The following are MYM mental health training opportunities offered by the Collaborative and our information request link can be found directly below:
Community Resiliency Model (CRM)®
The Community Resiliency Model (CRM)® trains community members to not only help themselves but to help others within their wider social network. The primary focus of this skills-based, stabilization program is to re-set the natural balance of the nervous system.
CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and “resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and chronic stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skills-based approach.
Relationships help us learn, work and parent BETTER. When we experience tough times, they help us heal. With each connection, we develop a healthier stronger community.
Connections Matter is evidenced-based training which promotes caring connections as the foundation for developing healthy brains, supportive relationships and strong communities. Connections Matter strives to promote the building of more resilient, compassionate, and trauma-informed communities - thus allowing all children and individuals to succeed.
Connect Now provides an overview of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) study and a glimpse into Connections Matter Georgia, a more in-depth training designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resiliency, prevent childhood trauma, and understand how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma.
Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, MHFA helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In MHFA you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Training opportunities include MHFA Adults, MHFA Older Adults, MHFA Fire/EMS, MHFA Public Safety, MHFA Military/Veterans/Families, and Youth MHFA. (Note: these are each day long training events.)
