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
