Meyers Brothers Kalicka, P.C. have made a $10,000 donation to the Mental Health Association (MHA) to fund Non-Violent Crisis Intervention training for MHA’s direct care staff.

“To train in Non-Violent Crisis Intervention is an important professional development opportunity for MHA staff,” said Cheryl Fasano, President & CEO of MHA, Inc. “MHA does not use physical restraint in any form so our staff members need skills to safely de-escalate and manage challenging behaviors in a non-violent manner. Our training curriculum from Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI) goes further by also helping better equip our staff to prevent difficult situations from escalating. That’s good for the safety of our staff and the benefit of the people we care for. This kind of specialized training is not covered under the state contracts that fund the operation of our programs. Generous gifts like the one from Meyers Brothers Kalicka make these professional development opportunities possible.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to contribute to the training and programing at the Mental Health Association,” said Rudy D’Agostino, Partner, Meyers Brothers Kalicka. “We applaud the challenging work that the professionals at MHA take on every day and understand that Non-Violent Crisis Intervention is an important tool for those professionals. Seeking resolutions through de-escalation and helping individuals find the care and treatment they need to heal and grow is an important mission. We’re proud to partner with MHA.”
