Moving in new directions (MIND Program)
Moving in New Directions (MIND) was piloted as the Pipeline Enhancement Project (PEP) for the Murrieta Mesa and Cajon high schools. The student-focused mental health awareness program provides certified trainings, school-based activites, and mental health career awarness.
Teen Suicide Prevention: After completing a training, 98% of surveyed students reported they were “knowledgeable” or “very knowledgeable” about suicide prevention. An increase of 36% of students indicating knowledge before the training!
Cultural Competency: There was an increase in the percentage of students who reported understanding the cultural factors involved in diagnosing and treating mental illness, from 40% before the training to 85% after the training. After the training, 85% of the students indicated that they understand the characteristics and principles of culturally competent care, while only 19% reported such understanding before the training.
