Welcome to your source for mental health staff training!
My mental health learning modules are designed to help you meet your staff training needs for bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, and dementia.
I discuss these common mental health diagnoses; typical medications prescribed; offer staff suggestions on non-pharmacological interventions; and provide examples of typical behaviors associated with each diagnosis to help your direct care staff recognize the clinical presentation for each diagnosis.
I have drawn from my 35 years of mental health nursing, working with people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. I've added a few dashes of humor (because we nurses all know our patients do some funny things sometimes) to develop this series of 1-hour diagnosis-specific learning modules geared towards the learning needs of your direct care staff. All of my learning modules support person-centered and recovery-focused care.

the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) training requirements for skilled nursing facility staff.
