TA Coalition Webinar: Best Practices in the Use of Self-Direction Care to Support Recovery in Women

Building relationships and support systems is an important part of recovery. Mental Health America’s highly innovative It’s My Life: Social Self-Directed Care program combined evidenced-based practices of Peer Support and Psychiatric Rehabilitation with Self-Directed Care and Life Coaching to support those in recovery and to help some of the most isolated members of our communities to become more connected to others. The program not only helped to build self-esteem and improve quality of life but also led to a reduction in crisis events and hospitalizations. The webinar will provide an overview of the program, guidance on what was learned, and a discussion of the challenges and benefits of programs integrating a focus on social connection in recovery.
