Person-Centered Recovery Planning Consultation Corner: Person-Centered Advance Crisis Planning to Maximize Choice & Control (Session 5)

The Person-Centered Recovery Planning (PCRP) Consultation Corner is a 6-month learning series featuring a monthly webinar on the “FAQs” of PCRP; offering practical tools and resources to support quality PCRP at the level of both individual service delivery and organizational systems change; and providing follow-up “office hours” through smaller-group technical assistance for webinar participants who wish to take a “deeper dive” on a given topic.

The topic for webinar session 5 is "Person-Centered Advance Crisis Planning to Maximize Choice & Control."

At the end of the series, participants will be able to:

  • Define PCRP and its essential elements
  • Increase familiarity with existing and emerging state and federal requirements regarding PCRP
  • Articulate a minimum of three differences between traditional methods of treatment planning and best-practice PCRP
  • Learn more about how the MHTTC PCRP Consultation Corner series can provide tools and resources to support the implementation of PCRP at your organization


While the Consultation Corner’s webinar series is open to a national audience, priority for technical assistance office hours following this webinar session on July 17 will be given to webinar participants from the New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, New Hampshire) and South Southwest (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas) regions.
