CERTIFIED PHYSICAL INTERVENTIONS TRAINING is a certifiable Nonviolent Crisis Intervention training program at no additional cost.  The CPI Initial Training is an eight hour training good for two years. In addition, Sanilac CMH will be offering a refresher three hour training that is also good for two years. This is a physically interactive class. They require participants to physically interact with one another. Due to the amount of physical interactions, participants will need to follow these guidelines: 1.) Physically be able to participate and demonstrate physical interventions safely. 2.) Tennis shoes are to be worn the day of either CIP training to prevent injury. 3.) Physical moves require bending over. Make sure to wear appropriate clothing attire. 4.) It is not recommended that participants attend class if a 3rd shift has been worked. For those staff that may not need these intense trainings, a less intense training entitled Proactive Intervention is included in the below links. See the Community Calendar, below, for CPI training schedules.

RECIPIENT RIGHTS INITIAL/ ANNUAL TRAINING provisions of the Mental Health Code and our contract with your organization require that persons providing consumer services obtain Recipient Rights Initial training within 30 days of employment and annually thereafter.  Recipient Rights Initial and Annual Training are face to face, done by the Recipient Rights Office.  See the Community Calendar below for the training schedules.
