The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) Homelessness Resource Center (HRC), Project for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH), and SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) are offering a FREE two-day regional training!
The purpose of this training is to advance best practices and innovative strategies to resolve homelessness, based on person-centered, trauma-informed, and recovery-oriented approaches to care. Sessions will include topics related to housing, employment, critical time intervention, consumer integration, motivational interviewing, medical care for non-medical providers, population-focused approaches, communities of practice, self-care, and more.
