Building Your Program. Supported Education: A Promising Practice. Evidence-Based Practices KIT (Knowledge Informing Transformation)
Unger, Karen V.
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
"Building Your Program" is intended to help mental health authorities, agency administrators, and program leaders think through and develop Supported Education. The first part of this booklet gives you background information about the Supported Education model. Specific information about your role in implementing and sustaining Supported Education follows. Although you will work closely together to build your program, for ease, the author separated tips into two sections: (1) Tips for Mental Health Authorities; and (2) Tips for Agency Administrators and Program Leaders. In preparing this information, the author could think of no one better to advise you than people who have worked successfully with Supported Education. Therefore, the author based the information in this booklet on the experience of veteran program leaders, administrators, and consumers and end the booklet with words of advice.
