In your future work, you will likely need to educate clients about treatment resources available for various mental health and wellness needs. Create a patient education handout in the format of your choice for an imaginary client with a mental health issue of your choice. Describe a common evidence-based practice relating to this mental health issue and how this treatment may address your client’s need regarding mental health and wellness.
Look at local programs in your area when selecting a program to recommend for this imaginary client. This handout/brochure should be used as a resource as if you were the behavioral health provider in a medical setting. Remember that as someone who is not a licensed mental health counselor, you must distinguish between offering counseling and how to connect clients with needed resources as diagnosed by licensed professionals. The purpose is to explain treatment approaches and educate your client on care options.
