The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is hosting a series of free Recovery-Oriented Practice webinars. Sign up for this month’s webinar on Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

UPCOMING WEBINAR:

Does the Self-Directed Funding Model Work in Mental Health?
Wednesday, June 7th 2017
1:00- 2:30 p.m. ET
 

Recovery-oriented practice affirms a person’s right to exercise self-determination, to exercise personal control, to make decisions and to learn and grow through experience.   Can these principles also apply to how an individual manages the funding for their mental health services and supports?

Come learn about self-direction, in which participants manage an individual budget, purchasing services and goods to achieve their recovery goals.  Join Dr. Kevin Mahoney from Boston College School of Social work and Dr. Bevin Croft from the Human Services Research Institute to learn about the principles of self-direction, the research showing its effectiveness within the US and discuss practical issues for tailoring for local delivery systems.


Guest Speakers:

Kevin J. Mahoney, Ph.D.
Professor, Boston College School of Social Work
Founding Director, National Resource Center for Participant-Directed Services

Bevin Croft, MPP, Ph.D.
Research Associate
Human Services Research Institute


The MHCC’s webinars on recovery-oriented practice are designed for everyone involved in mental health services, including people living with mental health problems or illnesses and their families. Most of all, the webinars are intended for people who can help make the practical, organizational, and cultural shifts needed to develop a truly recovery-oriented mental health system.

This free webinar will be in English and a recording will be available on the website in May 2017. The PowerPoint presentation will also be available afterwards in both English and French. Additionally, please note that the MHCC hosts a monthly French webinar series on the first Thursday of each month.
