Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) is a flexible intervention that helps individuals with a serious mental illness acquire information and skills to develop a greater sense of mastery over their mental health.
“I found it very beneficial to review the latest IMR treatment module information with my consultant and brainstorm how to apply it to my setting. The focus on both mental health and substance use recoveries is a major improvement in this area.” Martina Rodgers, PhD, LP
MNCAMH training is interactive; this allows clinicians to practice the skills they need to teach individuals with severe mental illness how to manage their disorder in collaboration with professionals and significant others in order to achieve personal recovery goals.
IMR training includes:
- Workshop sessions on the foundational concepts and skills required to implement IMR
- Applied learning and consultation
- IMR Manual (digital and paper copy) and participant materials
- 12 hours of continuing education credits plus 12 additional credits if all consultation is completed
- Practitioner evaluation
- Agency fidelity review
Homelessness in Minnesota – What we know about who is homeless, why, and what we can do to address it
In 2018 Wilder Research counted more people experiencing homelessness in Minnesota than ever before. Homelessness affects people from all backgrounds, is experienced differently be each person, and has implications for health care and social service providers through the state. This webinar will discuss key findings and trends from the Minnesota Homeless Study, including what factors may contribute to people becoming homeless and how homelessness impacts children, adults, and older adults. In additional to describing the scale of homelessness in Minnesota, ideas for addressing homelessness will also be shared. Learn More
Substance use, mental illness, and other behavioral health disorders are the most highly stigmatized health conditions.

Labeled individuals are then socially devalued, which leads to inequality and discrimination, both on individual and systemic levels. Research suggests that stigma can manifest in subtle and largely unintended ways, and none of us are immune to negative stereotyping. Learn More
