Coding For Mental Health

For more information on the Coding Workshop visit here.

The coding group started in 2015 for the first time. The coding workshop was ongoing during the 2016/2017 calendar year. It has been on a few hiatuses. Since then we have developed an entire series of curriculum content to not only resume this program, but also dramatically expand it to other treatment centers and outpatient facilities.

MISSION:

We envision the Los Angeles treatment centers for mental health and substance abuse, to incentivize recovery for clients through the integration of a purpose-driven peer model focused on the pedagogy of tech and job placement.

PROBLEM:

Most recovery facilities don’t have the capacity to individualize clinical support and provide practical skills training workshops. Individuals lacking motivation, capacity, or the understanding of their full potential have a harder time being adherent with services and medication.

SOLUTION:

Through our curriculum and peer coding group leaders we train participants in coding, training in the latest mobile and web application development technologies in languages such as HTML5, CSS, jQuery, Javascript, Java, Python, C#, and Frameworks and Content Management Systems including React Native, Bootstrap, Android Studio, and WordPress. Members acquiring new skills and purpose tend to socialize more and show compliance toward clinical support.

SOCIAL TECH APPLICANT RECOVERY (STAR) MODEL:

Like most popular apps and smartphones; updating and upgrading is a must and to reflect that practice is to show the scalability in its program development, target market, and benchmarks. When you look at the existing recovery models across the Los Angeles region, you’ll notice the majority of them haven’t updated their programs’ operational framework since it first opened its doors, giving you the same results; ergo ten-year-old statistics remain to be on a downward slope with an increase of homeless youth, incarceration, and mental health challenges. We couldn’t agree with this statement when applying it to the app markets of tech; statistics vary and fluctuate on a weekly to monthly basis. If we are adamant of updating our apps, why wouldn’t we be adamant of updating our justice system, recovery model, and internal programming?

BRING CODING WORKSHOPS TO YOUR CENTER:

Is your organization interested in having our peer group leaders run coding workshops at your wellness center or housing facility? Contact us at hello@codiepie.com or simply click here. Please specify how many groups you’d like us to run per week or month in the message field.

Can you picture a thriving community and a center run by people with mental health challenges? Standing up together for mental health. 🌷 Globally 🌎, 1 in 4 people are dealing with mental illness of some kind. A mental illness will affect you, your friends, loved ones, and family.

You may know a vet suffering from PTSD, a homeless person who desperately needs care denied, recently released from jail back onto the streets, someone cut off from the support of friends and family. Mental Illness is feared in our society, leading to denial, worsening of symptoms, and social exclusion. Inadequate social policy leaves psychiatric populations prone to unemployment, homelessness, and jail, reinforcing that fear.

We need hope, not another grim statistic. We need to create more success stories.

Help us do it. Together, with us we can, starting with each individual walking through our doors. It may seem like baby steps, but the impact it can have one one person can be huge.

When you rehabilitate in the full sense of the word, it means:

– access to support services to manage symptoms and practice prevention.

– empowered with access to education and training.

– job prospects, possibility.

– expanded support system from finding acceptance among like-minded people.

Even a small $20 donation can transform one person’s life. Each success story is another shining beacon of hope. Your donation brings art groups, peer leadership opportunities, and more, even including marketable tech skills such as coding. Being part of the solution, you will help bring about a much needed change in the mental health community.
