Promoting Recovery of Serious Mental Illness Through Self Direction: Strategies and Lessons From New York State

Tuesday, June 26, 2018 | 2–3:15 p.m. Eastern Time

SAMHSA invites you to join a webinar about a pilot program that the New York State Office of Mental Health is implementing to assist people with serious mental illness. The pilot is using the Self Direction program, which supports people in developing and directing their own services to help reach their own goals for recovery and independence. The pilot pairs each person’s recovery plan with a flexible budget to purchase goods and services relevant to their goals. The presenters will:

  • Provide an overview of the Self Direction program models and outcomes research.
  • Describe how New York’s model was developed and adopted.
  • Discuss operational concerns.
  • Report early participant outcomes.
