You're Invited! May 5, 2017 All Member Meeting

Join us as we recognize Children’s Mental Health Awareness in May with a panel of professionals from Devereux, Family Involvement Center and MIKID.  They will share their expertise and answer member questions.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, approximately 73,000 children in Arizona live with a serious mental health condition (2010, provided by Family Involvement Center).  As a result, it is more than likely that you are working with families who are facing this challenge in their own home.

What is the world like for a family with a child who struggles with a mental health condition?  What are some of the indicators?  As a provider who works with the family but is not a mental health practitioner, what kinds of supports can you provide or refer to a family?

Please join us May 5th for this interesting and insightful panel discussion and RSVP by May 3, 2017 for each individual planning to attend.

A Certification Training on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support

The Maricopa Family Support Alliance is offering a full-day certification training on the Standards of Quality for Family Strengthening & Support.  The Standards detail how the 9 Principles of Family Support and the Strengthening Families Approach, with its evidence-informed 5 Protective Factors, can be applied together to enhance your work with families.  Whether you are setting up a new program or strengthening an existing one, the Standards provide a blueprint for implementing best practice.

Topics Covered:

  • Overview of the Premises and Principles of Family Support
  • Overview of the Strengthening Families approach and its 5 Protective Factors
  • Family Centeredness—How can we develop and implement a program that is centered on the needs of families?
  • Family Strengthening—How can we help families to build upon their strengths for achieving success?
  • Embracing Diversity—How can staff and families embrace the many facets of diversity?
  • Community Building—How can programs and families build strong communities?
  • Evaluation—How do we know how well our programs are serving families?

Interested in attending?

  • Participants are encouraged to come as a team of 2 or more people. This may include Executive Directors, Supervisors and Direct Service Staff, as each has a key role to play in implementing the Standards effectively.
  • Participants who complete the full session will receive certificates from the Maricopa Family Support Alliance that are valid for two years.
  • The cost per participant is $50 (includes snacks, coffee and other drinks, lunch and all materials). This cost is subsidized by MFSA—the full cost for this training is $120 per person.
