SAMHSA invites you to join a TA Coalition webinar with the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law highlighting how people experiencing mental health challenges encounter the justice system. Presenters will discuss how mental health, criminal justice, and correctional programs can work together to meet Americans With Disabilities Act obligations and provide an array of services that reduce the likelihood that people with mental illnesses will enter the criminal justice system.
Self-Direction Through Personalized BudgetingTuesday, February 27, 2018 | 2–3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
SAMHSA invites you to join a TA Coalition webinar with the National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery to examine self-direction as a model for supporting an individual’s recovery efforts. Using the self-direction model for organizing support, the participant manages a budget to purchase a variety of services and goods that facilitate their recovery. Webinar presenters will introduce self-directed care, discuss current approaches, and share about their experiences with self-directed care from three unique perspectives: researcher, consumer, and state administrator.
