Sessions & Schedule

Institutes

During the 20th Annual Case Management Conference, Integrating Care & Influencing Outcomes Through Case Management, NACM will offer two Institutes. Institutes create specialized programing to address specific training needs in small group sessions during the conference.  This year NACM will be offering a Supervision Institute to meet the needs of new and experienced supervisors and a Mental Health First Aid Institute offering a certification in the program.  Both institutes require specific registration and have the option of adding the last day of the conference at an additional charge.

Supervision Institute


Overview

The NACM Board of Directors has designed this training to respond to programmatic needs in the context of a leadership model that will serve to enhance supervisory performance.  This institute has a leadership focus and will be presented by trainers who specialize in adult learning techniques.  There will be opportunities for discussion and hands-on practice of what is being presented as well as informal opportunities for networking and learning from others.  Attendees can register to attend only the two-day Supervision Institute or the Supervision Institute and the last day of the conference.

Objectives

At the conclusion of the Supervision Institute, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify individual and organizational change processes and how to support employees.
  • Define strengths-based coaching and corrective action planning.
  • Distinguish individual skills to help those you supervise self-manage.
  • Align supervisory strategies to case managers having different strengths and needs.
  • Discuss how to use outcomes monitoring in daily practice.

Mental Health First Aid Institute


Overview

Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour training course designed to give members of the public key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.  Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis.

The evidence behind Mental Health First Aid demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy —  helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness.  Specifically, studies found that those who trained in Mental Health First Aid have greater confidence in providing help to others, greater likelihood of advising people to seek professional help, improved coordination with health professionals about treatments, and decreased stigmatizing attitudes.  Attendees can register to attend only the two-day Mental Health First Aid Institute or the Mental Health First Aid Institute and the last day of the conference.

Objectives

Mental Health First Aid certification, which must be renewed every three years, provides trainees with the ability to:

  • Recognize the potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems.
  • Use a 5-step action plan to help an individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional help.
  • Interpret the prevalence of various mental health disorders in the U.S. and the need for reduced negative attitudes in their communities.
  • Apply knowledge of the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help resources available to help someone with a mental health problem treat and manage the problem and achieve recovery.
