Webinar Engagement: The New Standard for Mental Health Care

Date: Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Time: 2:00pm Eastern Time

A SAMHSA sponsored webinar, developed under contract by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will take place Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 2:00pm Eastern Time called “Engagement: The New Standard for Mental Health Care”.

 Webinar Link: https://nasmhpd.adobeconnect.com/engagement_reg/event/event_info.html

(Please either right click on the link or copy and paste the link into a new tab.)

Description:  Many people who seek mental health care drop out. 70% that drop out do so after their first or second visit.[i][i] The first moments of interaction between a service provider and a person seeking care for a mental health condition can set the tone and course of treatment. This first interaction can start a journey to recovery and a satisfying life—or it can leave a person unsure or even hopeless about their future and unwilling to go back a second time. The same is true about interactions with others in the community; a person who has been told that people with mental illness are scary, weak or unable to care for themselves may not seek help or may avoid telling others the full extent of what they are experiencing. Effective engagement should be the foundation of mental health services, not merely an aspiration.

This webinar will explore NAMI’s listening session on engagement including: the process that went into the project, the experience and outcomes of the listening session and next steps towards promoting a culture of engagement.

Presenters:

Darcy Gruttadaro, JD, NAMI Director of Advocacy

Laura Usher, MA, NAMI Senior Manager of Criminal Justice and Advocacy

Ann-Marie Louison, MSW, Co-Director Adult Behavioral Health Programs, CASES

 Bill Carruthers, Program Manager, Savannah Counseling Peer Program

PABSS Quarterly Call Tentative Agenda

Date: Thursday May 4, 2017

Time: 2:30 pm eastern time

While PABSS programs are automatically designated to the existing P&A agency, CAP is not, and therefore P&As without the Client Assistance Program often find themselves in an uncomfortable and awkward situation with regard to The State Vocational Rehab Agency.  The largest number of Ticket assignments are with the VR agency and PABSS programs have authority to assist beneficiaries. In addition, P&As often identify and look to address systemic issues. 

On this Quarterly Call - pabss will be invited to join in the discussion with other PABSS folks to discuss some of the larger issues which face beneficiaries in their effort to secure rehabilitation services.  The 90 minutes will be broken into 10-15 minute segments of information sharing on a range of 6 or 7 issues already raised by PABSS Program staff.  The discussion will be facilitated and timed. The Training and Technical assistance team from NDRN on Vocational Rehabilitation will respond and guide the discussion.  Any subject discussion not thoroughly finished will be continued on the listserv.

Next PABSS call – July 13, 2017   2:30 pm    topic to be announced

September 14, 2017     2:30 pm    topic to be announced

The call in number will be provided by SSA as the date gets closer. Please check the PABSS listserv for additional information
