About this Resource:

This webinar is motivated by the reality that the majority of individuals diagnosed with ‘serious mental illness’ face significant socioeconomic challenges and high rates of employment.  In place of discrete “one size fits all” evidence-based practices, during this presentation Nev Jones, PhD discusses the broader landscape of strategies for improving outcomes across the spectrum of individuals who are currently seeking education or work or have applied for or are already receiving SSI/SSI.  Specific topics Dr. Jones covers include career development and career mobility supports, SSI/SSDI decision making, and financial empowerment strategies for individuals currently unable to work or attend school.
