What Will it Cover?

To achieve and sustain mental health, individuals with serious mental illness need access to an array of treatment options and need to be actively engaged in their own treatment and recovery support plan. Person and family centered care puts consumers at the center of the planning process. This method involves a collaborative and strengths-based approach that relies on understanding the preferences and abilities of the individual seeking treatment and their support systems in order to tailor a personal plan for success.

During this webinar, participants will learn more about person and family centered care. Presenters will share tips for engaging individuals and their family members in the treatment planning process, and stories of success. They will also share resources for implementing and encouraging the practice of person and family centered care.
