Let us help you with navigating Social - Mental Health Programming including SAMHSA's SPF!
Hello, Hola, Bonjour, Ciao,Yá'át'ééh, Yia sas: I am Frank Magourilos native of Greece and a 47 year permanent resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A.
My academic background consists of a Master of Prevention Science Degree from Oklahoma University, a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Journalism from the University of New Mexico. I also hold an IC&RC Certified Prevention Specialist Credential.
For the past 20 years I have been working with local, state, federal governments, and with local and national non profit organizations, in the areas of social health, behavioral health, mental health and wellness, and including substance abuse prevention.
My New Mexico clients list include: Bernalillo County, Chaves County, Eddy County, Mora County, Guadalupe County, Soda Creek Consulting, Rael Training and Consulting, UNM, MADD, NMCBBHP.org.
My national clients, including volunteer and technical assistance work are: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the National office of Mothers Against Drunk & Drug Driving (MADD).
In addition to my 20 years of expertise in Mental Health and Prevention, I have developed great relationships and have access to a very large network of like minded experts in the field that I can access for support and project development when needed.
I am also very flexible and available to travel regionally, nationally, and internationally for initial consultation, ongoing project management, workforce training, and short term projects.
With today's technology, a large portion of my work and your needs can be accomplished from my home base.
Now in the 5th year, our BE-ATI Campaign which is a locally created Social Health & Wellness campaign, funded by the Bernalillo County DWI Program and developed, strategically planned, operationalized, implemented, and evaluated by Prevention Works LLC.
We currently have partnerships in over 200 public and private schools and an additional 140 community organizational partners.
Our data shows reductions in underage drinking and related risk factors in Bernalillo County. Several other counties are gearing up to introduce similar campaigns with our help.
Q. Can you provide trainings on becoming a Certified Prevention Specialist?
A. Absolutely, as a matter of fact I have developed a two-day training on preparing those in the field that are close to taking their IC&RC exam. I can also provide trainings on every aspect and component of SAMHSA's Strategic Prevention Framework (I have been trained by SAMHSA on this model).
Q. Can you implement new programs or only manage existing ones?
A. Both, I can look at your existing programs and provide a thorough analysis including return on investment, conceptual fit, and practical fit. I can also make recommendations for filling gaps with new evidence-based programs. Most importantly, recommendations made are data driven, and based on local level capacity, and return on investment.
