Developing and Engaging Training on Person-Centered and Family-Centered Approaches in Mental Health and Co-occurring Disorders

Description

Addresses gaps in services and the fragmentation of service delivery for Minnesotans experiencing mental health conditions and/or substance abuse as the state moves these services towards community living and participation, self-direction, and person-centered practices. Despite overall improvements in service delivery, engaging the system can still be difficult and the coordination of supports, services, and treatments do not always make sense to the person receiving them or their families.

This project helped professionals address these system challenges by designing and implementing a curriculum that was co-created by community members and supports professionals in person and family-centered approaches. An online curriculum was developed that includes training on improving cultural responsiveness, working in the context of choice limits and supporting people in the context of family and valued social roles.
