The speakers for our October General Meeting are Lorraine Zeller and Larry Powell.
Lorraine Zeller, CPRP is a Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Mental Health Peer Support Worker and ACCESS CA Ambassador. Lorraine will share results of a statewide survey measuring factors important to clients in their recovery, the use of recovery outcomes data in county & state mental health systems, and recovery outcome measures used by The Village in Los Angeles, which resulted in development of the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). She will also present on MHSA General Standards, including client-driven programs and services and the importance of client advocacy to ensure quality mental health services.
Larry Powell, MS, LMFT is a SCC Behavioral Health Clinical Standards Manager. Larry will talk about how Transformational Care Planning focuses on client strengths, goals, hopes, and shared decision making.
