Helping people with a serious mental illness achieve a life of meaning and purpose outside formal systems of care is a desired goal for many behavioral health organizations. The challenge for most organizations has been to align organizational structures, policies, work processes, and practices in ways that are most effective to help people make progress in their recovery.
This webinar series will introduce multiple recovery-oriented organizational and practice approaches to assemble the “puzzle pieces” of the Specialty Mental Health System to advance clients’ recovery. Throughout the series, the following will be addressed:
Client goals: Everything must be within the context of goals that are meaningful and important to the individual
Provider role/medical necessity: Answering the question – “Why is a mental health professional needed to help with this goal?”
Provider interventions: Focused on removal of barriers to individual’s goals
Documentation: Tells a story weaving all three above elements together
Who Should Attend
Clinical supervisors and coaches
Providers (individuals and teams)
