Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
How might we design mental health systems that offer programs and practices that support self-efficacy and wellness? What do clients need to manage severe mental health symptoms and reconnect with their strengths? Research presented in this session is drawn from perspectives held by clients, coalitions and providers.
Session Objectives: Describe client perspectives on depression and accessibility of mental health services within low-income communities in New York City. Explain a “multiple streams” conceptual framework as an organizing principle to understanding barriers to effectively implement state and institutional policy. Evaluate the rate of psychotropic medication use among youth with serious mental illness before and after receipt of high fidelity wraparound services
