Will somebody please alert regarding the following documentation of two efforts to obtain/make available to general population, the courses listed below. Thank You. My own efforts are appearing counter-productive at this point, as "demanding" (LOL).

Recognizing the need for some programming that can be largely self-done during the current sequestered situation, CDCR's Mental Health Delivery System has made available to all prisoners in all prisons two multi-part in-cell study programs, one on Anger Management and the second on Depression - always relevant topics. These feature a substantial, evidence-based curriculum that provides a minimal contact with a mental health clinician and a certificate on completion. Those wishing to work the programs do not have to be a client in the mental health system, either CCCMS or EOP, but the program is offered by the mental health division.
To access the programs submit a Form 7362, asking for an appointment with a mental health clinician, let them know which module you'd like to work on. You'll be provided with the curriculum packet, including homework exercises, along with a 'cell front' visit by a clinician to collect your homework and answer any questions you might have. The topics and ideas that would normally be discussed in a group session are now done via answering questions and writing your thoughts.
Again, these programs are available to any inmate and you do not need to sign up for mental health services, therapy or treatment to participate in the in-cell learning. You are participating as a student, not a client or patient. Although these courses were sent to all institutions some time ago there seems to be a breakdown in communication, letting the prisoner population know of this opportunity (when was the last time CDCR offered anything for free, except possibly grief?), so we'd like to spread the word.
And if the mental health providers at your institution say they haven't heard of these programs, please let us know. There's nothing we enjoy more than providing a little reality check to CDCR's own. We'll be happy to make sure your institution not only knows about the two courses, but promotes them too.
Ask your counselor for Form 7362, submit it and begin taking advantage of one of the few things CDCR is, at their own instigation, making available to inmates that is free, helpful and timely. Wanting to continue your rehabilitative work and seeking those opportunities on your own, goes a long way to showing the board you're serious about your change and desire to become pro-social.
