Session Description

Mental Health Matters Washington (mentalhealthmatterswa.com) is a grant-based initiative to promote mental health education and awareness in South Snohomish County. Our team put together online training using the LearnDash platform with a variety of content types including text, images, videos, flash cards, quick checks and assessments as well as weekly live sessions and other community events to train Peer Mental Health Navigators (PMHNs), agents to help and support community members. Two cohorts have been offered so far, one in English and the other in Spanish. In this session, we will cover our plan, team responsibilities, schedules, marketing/messaging, preview the interface and share participant feedback.
