New process for training behavioral health professionals

The contract for training and certifying school staff as behavioral health professionals (BHP) has been awarded to Woodfords Family Services.

The contact person is Wendy Enright. She can be reached at wenright@woodfords.org. Her phone number is 878-9663, ext. 4138. You may also visit the Woodfords Family Services website.

Currently the contract includes processing the conditional certification for staff who have taken Module 1, and the SB-BHP certification for staff who have successfully completed the 28-hour curriculum. Processing will be provided at no cost to schools.

All certifications will be dated on the day that training was completed.

At this time, there are no immediate plans for another Train the Trainer Program. All current trainers are authorized to continue training BHP staff and send their certification requests to Woodfords.
