Salud Para Todos Workshop
The Salud Para Todos workshop is a four hour workshop designed for Community Health Workers, Program Supervisors, and staff in Leadership roles. The workshop explores the topic of Mental Health and offers unique strategies that organizations can implement to address mental health inside their communities.
This 4-hour workshop can be offered online or in-person at a site of your choosing. The Salud Para Todos workshop is based on a real-world program that was implemented by MHP Salud in Hidalgo County, Texas in 2015. The program reached over 2,000 residents and enrolled 276 participants in group education classes. The classes covered mental health topics like stress, anxiety, substance abuse, and mental illness. Knowledge about mental health amongst those participants around mental health improved significantly. At the baseline, participants scored an average of 42% on a brief mental health knowledge survey. At the conclusion of the classes, the average score increased to 96%.
Following this successful program, MHP Salud developed a Program Manual (in English and Spanish) as well as an Implementation Guide (in English and Spanish). This workshops uses these materials as a starting point to discuss the topic of mental health and explore how CHWs can help to meet this need in their communities. At the conclusion of this workshop, your organization will develop strategies to provide similar program services to the populations that you serve.
Participants will leave this workshop with an understanding of how Community Health Worker programs can help to meet the mental health needs of their communities. The objectives for this session are to:
- Understand the difference between Mental Health and Mental Illness.
- Identify culturally appropriate strategies to address mental health topics in your communities.
- Understand how to facilitate group sessions and activities related to mental health.
- Develop the ability to refer participants to the appropriate Mental Health services.
*Note: While not required for participation in the Salud Para Todos Workshop, participants can benefit from having previously attended the Community Health Workers, Outreach Workers and Lideres: What’s the Difference? session within the L.E.A.D. Supervisors & Managers Foundations level. Having an understanding of these distinct roles will help individuals and organizations determine how each position may be able to support the strategies to address mental health that are identified in this workshop.
