Our Training and Workforce Development efforts are designed to impact why and how services are delivered in the public mental health systems. Through the development and delivery of training programs, affliation agreements, internship opportunities, measurement tools, consultations, workshops and training sessions, MHALA brings recovery philosopy and practice to those who serve people living with mental illness.
We work with systems and organizations, professionals currently working in the field, those wanting to enter the workforce, and the general public.
We provide training programs for direct service workers, supervisors and leaders on recovery practice.
We conduct a fellowship program for those wanting to work in mental health that combines classroom training and applied internship experiences with our partner organizations and programs throughout Los Angeles County.
We provide internship opportunities for university and college students in our direct service programs that provide practical experiences that enhance the classroom learning the students receive.
We conduct topic specific workshops and training to improve and enhance recovery guided work.
We train and consult regarding the use and application of the Milestones of Recovery Scale (MORS) and the Determinants of Care, instruments designed to measure the recovery growth and needs of individuals served by the mental health system.
We provide Mental Health First Aid training that helps the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of symptoms of mental health conditions.
And we do so much more...
