Cross-Disciplinary Trainings

In addition to the trainings listed above, RCCMHC coordinates with our parters to present other trainings throughout the year. As- needed, staff also presents at conferences and facilitates trainings  for our member agencies. 

In 2021, we are partnering with the Suburban Ramsey Family Collaborative to offer a series of trainings for non-mental health professionals to broaden the capacity of our workforce to prevent youth mental health crises and support whole family wellbeing. 

Our Approach

Our approach to capacity building is based on the Annapolis Framework.  We support, strengthen and broaden our workforce through a variety of training opportunities across the continuum of care. And we emphasize the development of culturally-specific and culturally responsive providers.
