NACHW Learning Collaboratives: Focus on Mental Health and Self-Care

Our members spoke, and we have heard you. Over the last several months, our members requested more opportunities for sharing and collaborating within the workforce. In response, NACHW is starting a pilot program of Learning Collaboratives where CHWs from across the country come together for meetings around a certain focus area. These Learning Collaboratives are a space for members to listen to each other, learn from each other, develop our leadership skills and voices, and lift up CHW expertise and resources.

During our first meeting, many of the attendees mentioned the desire and need for greater mental health training, both for their clients and for their own self-care. This January meeting will focus on mental health and self-care. Similarly to last meeting, all attendees with start the meeting together and then split off into their collaborative groups:

The five initial collaborative groups will be:

  • CHW Organizational Leaders
  • Spanish Speaking Promotores/as
  • Mental Health
  • Immigrants and Refugees
  • Community Health Representatives (CHRs)

*Community Health Representatives (CHRs) refer to the individuals working through the Community Health Representative program run through Indian Health Services on many tribal nations. You can learn more about CHRs here. 

Our next meeting will be held Thursday, January 27th from 3-4:30pm EST.

The collaboratives are for CHW members of NACHW. To register, please sign-in to your account, please go to www.nachw.org and click on “Login” on the top right corner of the page.
