"Who You Gonna Call?"

Who You Gonna Call? is a presentation which provides information on how to access services and supports for Substance Use, Mental Health and/or Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. During this training we will discuss a range of other topics including; service authorization appeals, guardianship, and community resources that assist people with housing, finances, health care, and other services and supports. This presentation will focus on specific ways that people who are consumers of services and their family members, can become engaged as advocates in the development and ongoing monitoring of the service system. Our target audience is people who are primary and secondary consumers of mental health, substance use and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities services. In addition, we would like to attract anyone interested in learning more about how to advocate for and support persons to access services. Upon completion of this training, participants will know how to access behavioral health services and supports in their community, will know how to file a service authorization appeal or assist others to do so and will know how to more effectively operate as advocates within the service system.
