Description

Occupational therapy is preparing to re-enter mental health practice in an environment that is quite different from our earlier psychosocial work history. In this session, we will discuss current efforts to create opportunities and roles for OT in mental health; the preparation of students and practitioners to address the mental health needs of varied populations; and look at the evidence building on the SAMSHA website. Participants will be able to: review new trends in the provision of services; discuss current evidence about mental health interventions; identify opportunities to create/provide occupational therapy services in mental health in their own communities; discuss the relationship between Healthy People 2020 and occupational therapy; articulate the public health implications of mental health practice.
