Training and Development
Horizon Goodwill offers training to our in-house staff as well as local companies. Two types of training that we can provide are:
- Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training is an eight-hour, evidence-based public education program designed to equip laypeople with the knowledge they need to know how best to respond in a mental health emergency and how to offer support to someone who is in emotional distress.
- Mandt Training is a relationship-based crisis interaction “train the trainer” program used extensively across America. The focus has been and continues to be on building trust in and supporting people, not just their behaviors. Building positive, healthy relationships in places where people live, learn, work and play is the ultimate goal of our training programs. The Mandt System is a behavioral crisis interaction training giving individuals tools to manage themselves and helps them teach others to manage their own behavior, recognizing the early warning signs of potentially violent behavior and intervening proactively through de-escalation techniques and positive behavior supports.
