MHA provides a variety of training opportunities throughout the year. Many of our trainings offer low-cost continuing education credits for professionals who need them to maintain licensure.
MHA also coordinates and facilitates CIT (Crisis Intervention Team Training) for law enforcement and other first responders as well as the DUI Prime for Life class for individuals mandated to take this DUI intervention class.
MHA is an approved provider of the Kentucky Adult Peer Support Specialist Training by the Department of Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities. Peer support is the social and emotional support provided by persons with a mental health condition to others sharing a similar mental health condition to bring about a desired social or personal change. A Peer Specialist guides clients toward the identification and achievement of specific goals defined by the client and specified in the treatment plan. The job of a Kentucky Peer Specialist (KPS) is not to replace current clinical mental health staff but to offer additional and/or alternative options to help people in their efforts to recover. The training is designed to be held for 40 hours over a 5-day period. Click here for the application. Tentative dates for 2019 include:
