Webinar #16 - Working towards Recovery: Lessons on employment supports from CMHA Ottawa (August 30, 2017)

Working towards Recovery: Lessons on employment supports from CMHA Ottawa

Description: The unemployment rate of people with serious mental illness can be as high as 90% in certain segments of the population and many more people with mental illness are thought to be significantly underemployed or precariously employed.   These statistics are particularly disturbing since productive work has been identified as a leading component in promoting positive mental health and in paving the way for a rich and fulfilling life in the community.   

To assist people with mental illness in finding meaningful competitive employment, and addressing the stigma they often face, the Canadian Mental Health Association has implemented the “At Work/Au travail” program, a national collaboration delivered in 13 communities across Canada. This recovery-oriented program provides supported employment related services to individuals who have complex service needs related to a mental health illness and who want to find competitive employment in the catchment areas of the Agencies. The Program supports rapid placement, competitive employment opportunities, participant choice and retention services to assist in securing and maintaining employment, improving mental health, improving physical health, reducing hospitalization, increasing financial well-being, expanding positive social networks and integrating the community. 

Join CMHA Ottawa’s Jason Platt, Ken Wright, and Charlene Moysey as they provide an overview of CMHA Ottawa’s services and programs, client success stories, and the activities they are undertaking to build relationships with employers and help support clients in their job search and retention.  In addition, hear from two clients of CMHA Ottawa’s At Work program who will share their challenges and successes in their employment and recovery journey.

Webinar #15 - Does the Self-Directed Funding Model Work in Mental Health? (June 7, 2017)

Does the Self-Directed Funding Model Work in Mental Health?

Description: 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.

Le modèle de financement autogéré fonctionne-t-il dans le domaine de la santé mentale? (en anglais)

Description : Les pratiques axées sur le rétablissement affirment le droit d’une personne à l’autodétermination, le droit d’exercer un contrôle personnel, de prendre des décisions ainsi que d’apprendre et de croître lors de cette expérience. Ces principes s’appliquent-ils également à la façon dont une personne gère le financement pour les services et le soutien qu’elle reçoit en santé mentale?

Venez vous renseigner au sujet de l’autodétermination, soit le principe selon lequel les gens gèrent un budget pour acheter des services et des biens afin d’atteindre leurs objectifs de rétablissement. Joignez-vous à Kevin Mahoney du Boston College School of Social work et à Bevin Croft de l’Human Services Research Institute pour découvrir les principes de l’autodétermination et la recherche qui démontre son efficacité aux États-Unis ainsi que pour discuter des questions pratiques sur l’adaptation aux systèmes locaux.

Webinar #14 - Recovery-oriented Practice and Immigrant and Refugee Populations (April 20, 2017)

Recovery-oriented Practice and Immigrant and Refugee Populations

Description: Immigrants and refugees make up a large part of Canada’s population, yet too many people from these communities face significant barriers to seeking or obtaining mental health services. People from diverse backgrounds can have different values and traditions that inform approaches to mental health, for some, the importance placed on promoting autonomy and self-direction within recovery-oriented practice may appear to be in tension with their own emphasis on family and community connections. Responsiveness to the needs of immigrant and refugee communities requires capacity-building at all levels – systems, organizations and practice. Join Dr. Robert Whitley from McGill University along with Janet McAllister from the Seeds of Change project to learn more about research and programs helping to address gaps in knowledge and service delivery for these populations.

Guest Speakers:

Dr. Robert Whitley, Principal Investigator and Associate Professor,
McGill University, Department of Transcultural Psychiatry

Janet McAllister, Equity and Engagement Lead,
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health


Les pratiques axées sur le rétablissement et les populations de réfugiés et d’immigrants (en anglais)

Description : Même si les immigrants et les réfugiés représentent une grande partie de la population du Canada, un trop grand nombre d’entre eux font face à des obstacles considérables lorsqu’il s’agit de chercher ou d’obtenir des services de santé mentale. Les personnes d’origines diverses peuvent avoir des valeurs et des traditions différentes qui influencent les approches en matière de santé mentale. Pour certaines, l’importance accordée à la promotion de l’autonomie et à l’autodétermination dans le cadre de la pratique axée sur le rétablissement semble aller à l’encontre de la primauté qu’elles accordent aux liens avec la famille et avec la collectivité. La réceptivité aux besoins des immigrants, des réfugiés et des communautés ethnoculturelles et racialisées (IRER) nécessite le renforcement des capacités sur le plan des systèmes, des organismes et de la pratique. Venez entendre le Dr Robert Whitley de l’université McGill ainsi que Janet McAllister du projet Seeds of Change au sujet de la recherche et des programmes qui permettent de remédier aux lacunes sur le plan des connaissances et des services offerts à ces populations.

Conférencières invitées :

Dr Robert Whitley, chercheur principal et professeur agrégé au département de psychiatrie transculturelle de l’université McGill

Janet McAllister, responsable de l’équité et de l’engagement, Centre de toxicomanie et de santé mentale.
