CIBHS: Local Mental Health Board Rules and Responsibilities
Helping local health board members understand their role, and the rules they must follow.
Monarch Media partnered with the California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS) to create a course to help new Local Mental Health Board Members understand their responsibilities as board members, including the rules they must follow per California Law.
CIBHS’s goal was to create an on-line course to replace an in-person training for Local Mental Health Board Members in the state of California. They knew they couldn’t replace the entire in-person training and needed help determining what training to include, how to retain the best parts of the in-person training in an on-line format, and how to capitalize on the strengths of on-line learning. They also wanted a course that looked and functioned great on a mobile phone and could be delivered through the CIBHS website or as a link in an email without requiring a Learning Management System (LMS).
Monarch Media’s instructional design team worked closely with CIBHS to determine the authoring tools for their course and the best content to include in a 30-minute scenario-based training and the accompanying learner’s manual. We chose to author the course in Articulate’s Rise and started by introducing the legal framework of Local Mental Health Boards and the different community members that may serve on or work closely with the board. We introduced the nine different roles and responsibilities that board members must legally fulfill, then took the learner through a series of interactive role-play scenarios where they could explore each of the nine responsibilities while following a sample board that is grappling with the complex issue of improving mental health services for individuals who are homeless.
