Mental Health Trainings for Schools and Organizations
Don't forget - our trainings are now eligible for Educator CPE hours in addition to LMFT, LPC and MSW CEUs. Learn more about our various trainings on our website. Keep a look out for an announcement about a Youth Mental Health First Aid course in March.
Recovery-sensitive locals are making a concerted effort to create a sober "counter-culture" party vibe in Houston. Toward that end, and as the 2017 host home for The NFL Super Bowl LI, local organizations have partnered to produce a clean, safe alternative festival event on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, 2017. Learn more on the SoberBowl SuperFest website.
Call for Partners
The Center is planning to answer the Request for Ideas posted jointly by the Rockwell Fund and the Simmons Foundation to work on school discipline reform in order to reduce exclusionary discipline and promote positive school climate. This work is central to the collective agenda of our Collaborative, which focuses on systems change and advocacy efforts.
Please let us know if your organization/school district would like to be more involved and help us design our project idea by Monday, January 23. We are currently building an ad hoc collaborative to apply jointly for this funding opportunity. Additionally, if your organization/school district is planning to submit an independent proposal, please let us know if we can support your project in any way. For more details, contact Janet Pozmantier.
