This is a sample of ‘homework’ that we ask participants to do and then bring back the results to the next session.
Suggestions before you begin your research
Using your telephone, call 211 and request information about the agency you are researching.
On-line go to informationniagara.com and search agencies.
Suggestions to begin your conversation
Place call and make introduction:
I would like a comprehensive description of your agency’s services. Can you tell me the name of the person who can explain in detail, your various programs and services.
Once on the line with the person that can help you, feel free to tell them that you are taking a 12-week course with the Family Mental Health Support Network of Niagara and that each of the 20 participants has been assigned to research one agency and to report back to the group.
