About the Event:
Evidence-based practices have become the goal for supporting recovery for people with severe mental illness. But, we are not all working in environments that have the capacity to achieve full fidelity to these models. This 6-part series will review the core aspects of several evidence-based psychiatric rehabilitation practices, focusing on practical strategies and skills that participants can do now to make a difference.
Part 1 of this 6-part series (Thursday, January 27th | 12:00 PM ET) focuses on tools for self-management: Lessons from Illness Management and Recovery.
