Creating a safe, engaging environment can make or break success in mental health and substance use disorder recovery. From helping to create a home (not just “housing”) to holding a safe space in a conversation, it starts with meeting people where they are through Person Centered Planning. This workshop will help you set the stage for recovery-oriented transformation through establishing an environment where the condition of being human is priority number one and the evidence-based practice of Person Centered Planning (PCP) is activated across the system of care. Part One of this workshop will focus on the organizational structure and systems required to support PCP, as well as recruitment and hiring.
