The County of Los Angeles Department of Mental Health MHSA Workforce Education and Training Division invites eligible agencies to nominate participants to attend the Family Health Navigator Certification Training Program led by Pacific Clinics Training Institute (PCTI). We invite you to take advantage of this FREE training opportunity and nominate at least 2-3 individuals from your site.
The Pacific Clinics Family Health Navigator Certification Training Program has been tailored for individuals in the behavioral health workforce, providing specific resources and interventions for the population served and best practices within the behavioral health field. In this training, participants will become familiar with the critical role that Family Health Navigation plays in providing integrated services that address the health needs of both the child and the family as a whole. Pacific Clinics Family Health Navigation (FHN) is an approach to working with parents and caregivers that addresses both the mental health and physical health of families. This approach focuses on prevention, early intervention and self-management skill building in working with families. The model includes skill building in the areas of communication, coping, health literacy, and parenting skills as well as education in behavioral health and physical health areas. Since a family's culture and beliefs have an impact on health practices, the role of culture will be explored. The goal is to help families learn to identify early signs of behavioral/emotional problems in their child, increase their health literacy skills, access mental health treatment and to develop the skills needed to successfully navigate the healthcare system.
