As occupational therapy practitioners, we are prepared by our academic programs and clinical settings to understand that part of our distinct value as a profession is to meet the mental health promotion, prevention and intervention needs for all persons in society. Although client needs can vary significantly depending upon the presence of diagnosed mental health concerns or those that are more transient, we understand the power of participation in daily life activities and the importance of supportive habits, roles and routines to bring well-being and resilience to the lives of our clients.
This course is based upon the multi-tiered public health approach model as a means to illustrate the roles of OT practitioners in promotion, prevention and intervention across the lifespan and in keeping with the level of need of the client. Basic information regarding mental health and wellness including approaches and necessary tools that cross service tiers are also provided.
Following this course, participants will be able to:
· Identify underlying knowledge of mental health and wellness
· Identify approaches and tools necessary for mental health practice across service tiers
· Differentiate between the different tiers of mental health service
· Identify examples of mental health service across the tiers
· Identify evidence-based interventions for mental health service at each tier
