Community Education and Training

SCMH is committed to providing mental and behavioral health education and support to our Butler County communities.  School personnel, health care providers, law enforcement, social service organizations, businesses and other community organizations are encouraged to contact us for any need.    irispauly@scmhcc.org    phone  558-3158 ext 311  

Some of our offerings:

Mental Health First Aid- Just as CPR and first aid are intended to help an injured person before proper medical treatment can be provided, Mental Health First Aid is designed to teach the public key skills to help someone developing a mental health problem or crisis. The courses are designed for intervening with either adults or youth to help participants learn how to recognize mental disorders; better understand mental health treatments; be more confident in providing help to others; and to be more comfortable around people with mental disorders.  For more information or to schedule a class, contact Carrie Latimer- carrielatimer@scmhcc.org  316-321-6088 ext.109 or Allison Schulte- allisonschulte@scmhcc.org 316-452-5660 ext. 200.  

Love and Logic- Parenting classes that provide a loving balanced approach that is neither permissive nor punitive.  The focus is on helping children develop personal responsibility, self-control and good decision making skills.  Unlike some approaches we don’t use complicated reward or punishment systems only focused on short-term compliance.  Instead, the focus is on nurturing long-term relationships and reinforcing good character.  Cerificates Available.  For schedule of Love and Logic Classes, Click Here► Love and Logic 2017 schedule.pdf

Conscious Discipline- These parenting classes define discipline not as something you do to children but something you develop within them.  Helps develop skills that break the cycle of "do as I say, not as I do", and discipline children without permissiveness, aggression or guilt.

Other Offerings include but are not limited to: Suicide Awareness and Prevention; Divorce Issues; Self Harming behavior; Depression; Trauma, Grief, Psychological Care for the Elderly; Parenting Support Groups and Mood Regulation.
