Morganton, NC – Struggling to get help for a child with behavioral health concerns? Feeling like you just aren’t being heard? Help is out there, and here’s how to find it…

Come join us for a System of Care Training, delivered by Alvin Grindstaff, Jr., MATL, QP from A Caring Alternative and Mary Lloyd, CPSS from VAYA Health as the Family Partner Co-lead, at A Caring Alternative. They are located at 301 E. Meeting Street, Morganton, NC and the training will be provided on May 9 and May 10, 2018 from 9am-4pm. This is a two-day presentation.

System of Care training is designed to support all individuals who work with children in behavioral health and social support services by learning how to lead or participate in Child and Family Team meetings. These meetings are where earnest discussions occur for meaningful input on how to support children and their families while dealing with behavioral health issues. Participants in this two day training will be exposed to several mock meetings where, as participants, they will experience firsthand what it means to work in tandem with others to support the needs of a child with mental illness, trauma, or one who is struggling to maintain focus and control in light of stressors in their life.

This training is FREE to anyone with a child, or who acts as a primary caregiver to a child with mental illness or intellectual/ developmental disabilities.
