Anne Sullivan-Soydan
Project Director

The objectives of this project were to develop Supported Education model program intervention materials in collaboration with the University of South Florida, develop a Supported Education Policy Guide in collaboration with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, and to disseminate and evaluate the effectiveness of project products. The materials generated by this project were designed for use by providers and administrators from universities and mental health and rehabilitation facilities who wanted to implement supported education. The Supported Education Policy Guide was piloted with administrators and providers of support services from institutions of higher education.


Technical Assistance To Implement a Recovery Vision in State Mental Health Systems

Kathy Furlong-Norman
Project Director | see profile

The purpose of this project was to create a web-based repository of resource materials and information relevant to state mental health administrators and consumers working to create change toward more recovery-oriented mental health service systems. The decision to provide a web-based repository was based on survey data collected from both state mental health administrators and consumer/survivors who worked in state offices of consumer affairs. The information gathered was used to guide the formation of the repository categories.
