A Strategic Plan for Mental Health Mentorship Program Intervention
The objective of this plan is to guide healthcare workers with mental health issues to successful recovery. To achieve this, the strategic plan adopts the HOPE framework reviewed by Collins (2019). The acronyms of this framework entail; home, opportunity, people, and empowerment.
Hope- Stigma discourages many people with mental issues from attaining life goals is specific areas of their lives including, independent living, health, vocation, and relationships (Fokuo et al., 2017). As part of the mentorship program, hope entails evaluating the nature of patient’s lives in terms of security and safety to challenge their perspective of current circumstances.
Opportunity- This entails promoting and advocating specific coping interventions that can be applied within group settings to establish connectedness, identity, and meaningful life for patients. Additionally, the opportunity presented by a community of shared struggles offsets confidentiality risks present in seeking mental health interventions.
People- Due to increased concern for personal family and personal health, healthcare workers confront the stress of striking a balance between ethical obligations and connecting with loved ones (Maben & Bridges, 2020). The core of this intervention plan is to furnish individuals with similar and isolating professional competencies with a community of supports, confidants, and friends.
Empowerment- This focuses on highlighting the essence of personal responsibility for mental health and wellbeing. Through empowerment, patients will be encouraged to invest individual responsibility in their mental health outcomes. One example of empowerment activities is facilitating e-health services for patients through messaging and video calls. This way, patients recruited in the program can take advantage of work break periods to communicate with the program coordinator.
