Case Management: A Framework for the HYPA Way

 

Case management at HYPA is a collaborative process requiring strong communication between all stakeholders. HYPA has adopted case management to guide the work we undertake with clients. HYPA case management encompasses the assessment of needs, goal setting, and coordination of support services to contribute to and facilitate positive outcomes for the client, and has been proven to be effective, particularly when working with clients who require assistance to make positive changes in their lives and guidance to fulfill their potential. As such, adopting this has allowed HYPA to deliver purposeful, evidence based interventions to its clients. This workshop has been developed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn practical skills and techniques to enable participants to work effectively with young people.

Working with Families

 

Many services are limited in their capacity to work with individuals, particularly due to the intergenerational nature of the multiple and complex barriers they face. Working with individuals alone may not be the most effective way to support them to make positive changes in their lives. Including a client’s family in any case management may be an appropriate method for addressing long-term issues and barriers. This workshop has been developed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn practical skills and techniques to enable participants to work successfully with individuals and their families.

Working with Clients with Multiple & Complex Issues

 

Many services are limited in their capacity to work with individuals who are experiencing multiple and complex issues, due to their challenging nature. Staff at HYPA work with individuals who may be experiencing homelessness, drug and alcohol issues, mental health, legal matters, and violent and aggressive behaviour. This workshop has been developed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn practical skills and techniques to enable participants to work successfully with individuals with these issues.

Facilitate Peer Support

 

There is now a substantial body of evidence about the value of peer support programs in schools for students, with numerous studies evidencing improvements in students, including self-confidence, relationships with peers, enjoyment of school, attitudes to bullying behaviours, and perception of support from others. Peer support programs can also enhance students’ lifelong learning skills in problem solving, decision making, managing stress, organisation, leadership, coping with difficult experiences and taking responsibility.

Foundations of Mental Health & Wellbeing Train the Trainer

 

Mental health is a significant issue for children and adolescents, with approximately 14-20% being affected by a mental health problem every year (Aust. Govt., 2011). Mental health problems in childhood and adolescence can have widespread effects on physical well-being, educational, psychological and social development. Children who are mentally healthy are better able to: learn; experience stronger relationships; negotiate challenges; achieve long-term education and career goals; and enjoy better quality of life (Aust. Govt., 2011). By educating children in recognising their own triggers and warning signs, helping them to develop basic management skills, and assisting them to identify their own supports, will potentially increase resilience, and reduce the risk of mental health issues developing into mental health disorders. This workshop has been designed to provide participants with a curriculum to enable them to deliver the Foundations Mental Health and Wellbeing course within their school or organisation.
