Community Behavioral Health Training

The CAPE Training program has three primary objectives: (1) enhance participant mental health literacy and equip them with the capacity to heighten mental health literacy in the communities they serve, (2) enhance participant capacity to initiate and sustain local coalitions focused on community mental health challenges, and (3) enhance participant capacity to create effective action plans to address substance abuse or other community behavioral health needs.

The CAPE Training approach will employ lecture, training, and discussion, combining principles of adult distance education and in-person training.
