Sign-up 1st Approved Training Course KY Case Managers Builds a New Workforce to Fight Heroin Deat



The two-day training course addresses trauma, builds skills, and helps people work through tough problems. “We start with what it takes to build safety,” Komarek says. “Once people find safety they can start making progress.”

Case manager basic training is Komarek’s second program for the Kentucky behavioral health system. In 2002, the state adopted Komarek’s mental health training approach as part of its effort to stop jail suicides. “I developed that jail training program for Ohio courts and jails, and Kentucky picked it up,” Komarek notes. “I intend to take this new course anywhere it’s needed. Families and community members need the skills in this program to keep their loved ones alive.”
