We encourage community-based mental health and substance use service providers and organizations seeking financial support for staff education to check out the Community Social Services Training Fund, administered by the Federation of Community Social Services of BC.
In partnership with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions (MMHA), the Community Action Initiative (CAI) has established a Training Bursary Fund to support employees of eligible Supportive Recovery Assisted Living Residences to participate in courses, workshops, certificate programs or other formal training opportunities.
Proposed training must include knowledge or skill development that will enhance the employee’s ability to support clients with substance use challenges as per the following categories:
- Crisis Intervention and Conflict Resolution
- Intervention for Substance Use Disorders
- Trauma-Informed Practice
