This two-part series on "Whole-Person Care for People Experiencing Homelessness and Opioid Use" is based on a 2021 SAMHSA toolkit of the same name. Part 1 will provide an overview of selected content from the toolkit; Part 2 features a facilitated panel conversation among individuals in recovery from mental health and substance use challenges.
A Framework for Whole-Person Care in Behavioral Health
This is the first webinar of a 2-part series. Each webinar is 75 minutes long.
This webinar will provide an overview of selected content from the toolkit Whole-Person Care for People Experiencing Homelessness and Opioid Use Disorder. This toolkit, released by SAMHSA in August 2021, provides an overview of homelessness, opioid use disorder, and the core elements of a whole-person care framework. We will explore what it means to be person-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented, racially equitable, non-stigmatizing, housing-focused, peer-integrated, and self-compassionate in our work. This whole-person care framework is relevant for people working in all aspects of behavioral health care.
