I am currently preparing for my culminating project to graduate with my MPH. For my project, I am hoping to evaluate our state's rural health association as I work in the rural health field and was excited to loop in my existing professional interests.

My question is, would evaluating a professional association such as of rural health professionals, follow the same principles of evaluating a coalition or an issue-based initiative? I know most of their efforts are put toward advocacy, networking, and education if that is helpful for context.

Hello, I was referred by Prof. Ronald Harvey to this community website. Please, provide some ideas about easier integration of international freshmen students to the university community. Can you also tell me some opposing sides of this issue and why they might disagree? Some practices from real universities might also be helpful if you are aware of any.
Thank you!

Hello! We are Psychology Majors from the American University in Bulgaria and we are taking a course in Psychology of Social Change with Professor Ronald Harvey. One of our main projects is to make a research about a local social problem. We decided to work on the lack of housing on campus of our university since last year there was an influx of new students and many of them had to seek alternatives off campus (hotel rooms, rentals, Airbnb, etc.). This leads to lack of integration and a feeling of isolation from the community, which especially affects foreign students.

We are open to any suggestions on how we could make the students living off campus feel a part of the university and how we could help the university to tackle the issue. Any links/research done on this matter would be very helpful because we could not find much online. Probable topics we discussed are reflection on mental health, possible solutions, and cases from abroad where this situation occurred.

Thank you for your time! :)

Dear Advisors,

My teammates and I are working on a project for a Psychology of Social Change course with Prof. Ronald Harvey at the American University in Bulgaria. We are currently focused on a social problem that concerns mental health. We were thinking of exploring why people do not seek outside/professional help when needed. Our focus is Bulgaria, but we think that in the Balkan region, the case is similar. What we believe is the most 'troublesome' group is older men. In Bulgaria, the older generation does not seem to accept well the idea of going to therapy. This might be because of fear of shame. They tend to keep the problems to themselves, and/or friends and family. We currently haven't found any scholarly sources on this issue. Do you think you could maybe forward us some sources and studies that contain interesting information about the case?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
Viktoriya Ikonomova

How to cite a part of this website in APA format? I am looking to use some information off of this page https://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/implement/enhancing-support/peer-support-groups/main - but I am unsure how to cite it.

Developing a Framework or Model of Change Vie, 02/10/2023
Hi Everyone,
I am a practising individual and couple’s therapist, been trained at NIMHANS, Bangalore India. I practice in New Delhi (the capital city of India) in private. I am originally from Srinagar, Kashmir – the northern part of India. Kashmir has been conflict areas and a historic bone of contention between two countries – India and Pakistan and since the inception of armed conflict in 1990s, the society has been showing all the signs of trauma and increased psychosomatic illnesses.
After Covid, there has been an alarming increase in divorces and relationship dissolution impacting families, children and society in general. The armed conflict has already left thousands of children orphan and now increasing rate of divorces are making the situation more worse. Since the valley doesn't have any expert trained to intervene at a grassroots level or at a community level, I have been contemplating developing an intervention model to work with the community.
As I am not trained in community psychology and work with couples only in therapeutic context, I was hoping if you could guide me in a direction about how to approach the issue. I am putting up few important questions as of now that I have in my mind:

1. How to approach the idea of community intervention in the context of relationship problems prevalent in the Kashmiri society?
2. What research and intervention models are appropriate to engage at community level?
3. What stakeholders within the society I should collaborate with in order to make a sustainable and effective interventions?

I live in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, PA. We are having a controversy regarding the Township's Police Benevolent Association using the symbol of the Blue Line Flag on some of their communications to promote police solidarity. Many in our community feel the flag has been co-opted by white supremacists and is not appropriate to be used by Township police. Our Township Commissioners passed a resolution to prevent the police from using the symbol while on duty. This past Friday, the PBA informed the Township they are instituting legal action against the Commissioners. Those of us in the community who just want peace and justice need help in resolving the situation. Can you help us?

I started a nonprofit to provide transitional housing and life skill education for the single mothers in the redline neighborhoods. I am working on my first project to host a money management workshop. The location I am interested in is a low housing community with 100% single mothers residence and about 25% are working outside of the home. I want to know what would be the best way to start a money management workshop and would asking my bank to sponsor the event be a great idea? The main question is how should I propose using the community center as the place to hold the event?

Hello,

My name is Elizabeth Morgan. I have spent the last 2 years studying and researching impacts and treatment for trauma, PTSD, C-PTSD, with a focus on sexual abuse trauma. This is because one of my children, my daughter who turned 16 today) is a victim of sexual trauma from a family member.

I started college in 2008, and took many classes on psychology, and wrote most research papers with a focused and focus on mental health. Though I was unaware of what my daughter was going through until late November 2017, I have a significant amount of family members who struggle with mental health, and therefore I have always had a strong desire to understand their struggles as well as some withib myself. I am active duty Army National Guard, with nearly 14 years of service. I have an BS degree as well as an AA Degree in Organizational Management. My experience outside of personal research includes EMT, medical management, case coordinator, and about 5 years of training and operations of multiple small companies.
Since May 2020, my family and I have worked closely with the wrap around program in Indiana to focus on my daughter's recovery.
As the years pass and I see retirement quickly approaching, I am looking to get involved in my state and community and focus my career change in advocating awareness, making resources more known and readily available, and actively participating in policy change.
I have started by enrolling in FRIENDS Online Learning Courses for additional knowledge, but I am looking for guidance on getting actively involved.
I greatly appreciate your time, and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Hello, I'm a social worker and I just started a position as a Case Manager/Advocacy Specialist at a small LGBT community center in Washington, DC. My position is grant-funded and the only way they could get accepted was by creating a dedicated advocacy position outside of therapy services. My job is poorly defined and is honestly the creation of a person that does not want to be a program director nor do they want to be in-person with the community they serve. I'm just a bit overwhelmed with where to start. The other people on my team are remote and very disconnected with what in person is like or what the needs are. Our front desk on daily has people coming in with housing/shelter and food insecurities and the best they can do is direct to our pantry (if there is anything) and give them a resource guide that has not been verified/updated in a long time. I really need to develop a referral service system that connects to my advocating role but before that I feel like the most immediate thing (and most helpful for me learning other community services) is to update the resource guide but since Im overwhelmed im not even sure where to start with that. Any advice, tools or resources would be DEEPLY appreciated. Thank you so much!

My understanding for peer led support groups is that facilitators have no legal/insurance -required responsibility because we are peers and this is not a therapeutic group. Do you have any resource that states that? I only have my AFSP peer group manual stating that.
