State of Tennessee, Department of Mental Health and Developmentatl Disblities: Implementing the Evidence Based Practice of Illness Management and Recovery

Northern Management has been involved with the State of Tennessee, Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities since 2003, addressing systems change issues in the areas of employment and integration of employment services into existing mental health services, The current project, begun in 2007, seeks to broadly disseminate the Evidence Based Practice of Ilness Management and Recovery. This activity, funded through a federal grant, sprang from a pilot run in Shelby County. The project consists of three "train the trainer" sessions per year over the course of three years. Each course is designed to empower participants as change agents within their organizations and regions. To date more than 100 people have been certified as trainers, each of whom is committed to training 15 users of services and 5 co-workers. This "viral" approach has proven highly successful in assuring that organizations make the systemic changes necessary to implement this new service technology.
