Description: Recovery-oriented practice affirms a person’s right to exercise self-determination, to exercise personal control, to make decisions and to learn and grow through experience. Can these principles also apply to how an individual manages the funding for their mental health services and supports?
Come learn about self-direction, in which participants manage an individual budget, purchasing services and goods to achieve their recovery goals. Join Dr. Kevin Mahoney from Boston College School of Social work and Dr. Bevin Croft from the Human Services Research Institute to learn about the principles of self-direction, the research showing its effectiveness within the US and discuss practical issues for tailoring for local delivery systems.
