Strength in Partnership MHA + SMI Adviser

Working together, MHA and SMI Adviser have curated a collection of online courses, resources, and expertise for peer support specialists. Our goal is to help you deliver evidence-based care to individuals who have serious mental illness (SMI).

MHA and SMI Adviser

MHA plays a key role in SMI Adviser. On our Clinical Expert Team is Patrick Hendry, MHA Vice President of Peer Advocacy, Supports, and Services. He helps shape our strategy and offers guidance from the perspective of peer specialists and peer-to-peer engagement.

MHA also has a pivotal role in creating content for SMI Adviser across a variety of topics. This includes recovery and support for individuals and families who are impacted by serious mental illness (SMI). It also includes the role of peer specialists as part of the recovery support team. Over the coming months, look for this content in an array of formats.
