The Human Services Research Institute issued a press release announcing the launch of a new website focused on self direction in mental health. The website can be found here.
For the past three years, the Human Services Research Institute, Applied Self Direction, and the National Resource Center for Participant-Directed Services have worked together to evaluate demonstrations of self direction in six states. As part of this work, they’ve examined successes and challenges as states implement this new service delivery model, and they’ve analyzed administrative data to understand self-direction’s impact on individuals and populations. The website includes personal stories and video testimonials, an overview of self direction, descriptions of and links to the latest research, and links to additional resources at the state and national level.
