Projects

To further knowledge and networking among Johnson County mental health providers. MHCChas developed several ongoing projects. Contact us for more information about any of these programs.

Some results from the needs assessment surprised us.

NEEDS ASSESSMENT

In Summer 2015, MHCC worked with the federally funded grant program Hand in Hand and ETC Institute to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment survey of Johnson County. A random sampling of adults in 417 households was surveyed by phone, mail and Internet.

Survey Results

“We must see youth as problem solvers – not as problems to be solved.” – Reaching Teens

REACHING TEENS

Many members are implementing ways to work more effectively with teens as a result of this toolkit. Paving the Way, a federally funded grant program, is providing Reaching Teens to members of MHCC, and we are exploring ways to combine efforts throughout the community. As a result, teens would encounter the same language and approach in all the systems they encounter, ranging from schools to juvenile justice to child welfare to mental health providers.
We are working to help mental health providers understand any culture they encounter.

CULTURAL COMPETENCE

MHCC plans to sponsor two programs designed to enhance the ability of mental health providers to understand any culture they encounter. The first, the California Brief Multicultural Competency Scale (CBMCS) training, is a four-day program that helps mental health providers see their own biases so they can provide better services. MHCC is also planning a half-day “Poverty Simulation,” designed to help community members better understand the difficulties of those who live in poverty.
