Training and Scholarship Fund
RCCMHC uses membership contributions to maintain a Professional Training & Scholarship Fund. Based on available resources, agencies and individuals may submit funding requests throughout the year.
RCCMHC will award up to $1,000 to support children’s mental health (or related) trainings or workshops in Ramsey County.
RCCMHC will award partial scholarships up to $500 for individuals to attend publicly announced and credentialed children’s mental health (or related) conferences or 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 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.
