Hospital to Community: A Process of Inclusion
Friday, December 2, 2016
9 AM Pacific | 10 AM Mountain | 11 AM Central | 12 Noon Eastern
With Gina Calhoun, National Director for Wellness & Recovery Education, Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery
In this 1-hour Webinar, Gina shares her personal story of transitioning from long-term institutionalization to community living, including her work as a peer support specialist during the closure of Harrisburg State Hospital.
Following Gina’s story, we will explore the role of peer support in downsizing, right sizing and closing institutional-based settings. We will explore 3 interrelated approaches to include: the Community-Hospital Integration Project Program (CHIPP); the Comprehensive Individual Treatment and Community Support Planning Process; and the essential role of Certified Peer Specialists in the hospital to community transition.
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Explore recovery and community integration through storytelling and data.
- Explain the individual, community and financial benefits of downsizing, right sizing and closing state hospitals.
- Relate at least 3 positive outcomes of Certified Peer Specialists on the transition team.
After 17 years of back-to-back institutionalization, Gina credits her journey forward in life to relationships that chose to focus on What’s Strong Not What’s Wrong and to meaningful employment.
Gina often says, “I didn’t get well and go to work. Work was my pathway toward wellness.” Gina was the keynote speaker at the National Olmstead Policy Academy; the Center for Medicare and Medicaid’s All Staff Meeting and for the University of Tokyo’s Mental Health Convention.
