Underlying the goal of recovery for people with SMI, is the concept of self-determination. This is a process of taking back control of lives which have been overwhelmed by the debilitating nature of SMI and the loss of control resulting from reliance on a system that fosters dependence. Self-determination encompasses concepts such as free will, civil and human rights, freedom of choice, independence, self-direction, and individual responsibility. The challenge to the mental health system was to develop a philosophy that places the individual at the center of the system, and specific programs that deliver on it. Self-directed Care provides this, and enables individuals to assess their own needs, determine how and by whom these needs are met, and manage the funds to purchase the services. A support broker can help the individual develop their budget using their plan and a fiscal entity handles the payments. This webinar will take a comprehensive look at Self-Directed Care and its benefits for individuals with SMI.

Continuing Education Credit

Physicians

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The APA designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Psychologists

The American Psychiatric Association is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. American Psychiatric Association maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Social Workers 

American Psychiatric Association, provider #1743, is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved as ACE providers. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. American Psychiatric Association maintains responsibility for this course. ACE provider approval period: 05/18/2021-05/18/2024. Social workers completing this course receive 1.0 (clinical) continuing education credits.

Continuing education requirements vary from state to state. Many state boards grant reciprocity with national accrediting organizations and other state boards. It is the responsibility of each professional to understand the requirements for license renewal or check with the state or national licensing board and/or professional organization to become more familiar with their policies for acceptable continuing education credit. Social workers and Psychologists should contact their regulatory board to determine course approval.
