A Guide to Creating Self Directed Care Programming

This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

Temple University partnered with the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania on a manual that provides a detailed review of a novel and successful self-directed care program that is currently being offered in Pennsylvania. The program is delivered by peer specialists who serve as recovery coaches to help individuals establish and support new goals for their participation in community life and get access to funds to help pay for related goods and services. The manual contains materials within the appendix that local agencies can use to replicate this initiative, including intake procedures, goal planning and program monitoring forms, and evaluation instruments.
