Recovery Rocks! The Self-Directed Care Way

In this presentation from The 18th Annual Family Cafe, self-directed care program participant Cindy Witt talks about her passionate advocacy for herself and others with severe and persistent mental health and/or substance abuse diagnoses. Cindy shares how she went from being on life support to starting her recovery journey with help from the FL Self-Directed Care Program (FL SDC). This innovative service delivery program places individuals with mental illness at the center of their own decision-making, by allowing participants to work with a recovery coach to manage a budget that allows for purchases that enhance their recovery and help them reach their recovery goals.
