Personal Connections (Site Visits)
The Personal Connections module involves site visits. Site visits should be designed to help training participants build positive relationships with people with behavioral health conditions and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Site visits can support classroom learning by giving officers an opportunity to engage with people with lived experience and learn about service and advocacy organizations in their community.
Time 210 minutes (3.5 hours)
Upon completing this module, participants should be able to:
Describe at least two things they learned from their interaction with those living with behavioral health conditions, IDD, and co-occurring conditions;
Describe two changes to their approach when responding to someone with mental health conditions, IDD, and co-occurring conditions; and
Identify at least two ways that interactions with people with mental health conditions may differ from interactions with those with IDD.
