Temple Collaborative Seeks User Input on a New Guidebook for Consumers

The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion for Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities seeks your input into the development of a workbook / guidebook designed specifically for individual consumers – or groups of consumers in community mental health programs, psychiatric rehabilitation services, and consumer-run settings – who want to enter or return to work.

The Collaborative is considering production of a workbook / guidebook that would systematically help consumers consider and plan for competitive employment.  Topics might include:  the advantages and disadvantages of a return to work; the barriers to be faced and the supports to be found in planning for a career; grappling with SSI/SSDI work incentives and disincentives; the issues of disclosure (if – and who, what, where, and when) and discrimination; vocational training and career education options; and developing long-term work supports.

Before proceeding, the Collaborative is checking to assess the need for and focus of this product.  Please respond to a brief (three minute) Survey Monkey questionnaire on this topic, by clicking here.

Please visit the project listing page for more information and publications related to the NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Participation and Community Living of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities.  More information and publications from Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion for Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities is available through their website.
