This edition is all about employment, with discussion of the barriers that people with mental health conditions face in finding and retaining meaningful work, and information about a new campaign from The Campaign for Disability Employment intended to address the challenge. We also share CAFE TAC’s two employment guides, and provide a chance for you to let us know about your workplace experience.
The new Focus 2.0 also includes details about SAMHSA’s first
–ever Recovery Innovation Challenge, which will make new funding available to bring peer-driven, recovery-based ideas to scale, as well as info about the upcoming roll out of the national 988 crisis and suicide prevention line.
As always, the newsletter also includes our “Capacity Corner” column, which explores issues facing peer-run organizations. This time it looks at the program and service development process.
