Mental Health First Aid for Consumers, Families, and Staff

Wed, 10 Jul, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Wed, 10 Jul, 2013 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Dr. Lucy Esralew is the Clinical Administrator of SCCAT and S-COPE, two statewide crisis response and clinical follow up programs funded by the NJ Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services through Trinitas Regional Medical Center.  She will be giving an overview of an approach that is used to provide post-disaster support to individuals who have been exposed to manmade or natural disasters.  This presentation will review how we can extend support in times of crisis to consumers, families and staff in order to return everyone exposed to trauma to a sense of safety, routine and normalcy as soon as possible. We will consider why individuals with IDD are particularly vulnerable following exposure to traumatic events. Guidelines will be offered to adapt this approach to the unique needs of individuals with IDD, their families and staff.
