JUST BECAUSE WE DON’T DO IT,

DOESN’T MEAN WE DON’T KNOW IT !!! “


Work is a citizenship responsibility not just an opportunity l.jpg

WORK IS A CITIZENSHIP RESPONSIBILITY NOT JUST AN “OPPORTUNITY”

SOCIAL POLICY OUTCOMES HAVE TO INCLUDE MORE THAN CLIENT SELF DEFINED QUALITY OF LIFE INDICATORS

EXAMPLE: DROP OUT PREVENTION EFFORTS


Slide11 l.jpg

IF EMPLOYMENT IS FIRST WHAT IS SECOND?

SHOULDN’T WE BEGIN TO SEE EMPLOYMENT AS AN OUTCOME NOT A SERVICE STREAM?


Slide12 l.jpg

WHY DON’T WE SEEK TO HELP AND ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GET OFF SSA AND WELFARE?

IF INDIVIDUAL FUNDING AND FISCAL CONTROL OCCURS SHOULDN’T QUALITY ASSURANCE LOSE RELEVANCE?


Slide13 l.jpg

DO WE WORRY TOO MUCH ABOUT VALUES - STIGMA VS BEHAVIOR - DISCRIMINATION?

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO A JOB WITHOUT JARGON?


Slide14 l.jpg

WHY ARE HIGHER OUTCOMES/ EXPECTATIONS NOT ENDORSED BY ADVOCATES RATHER THAN FEARED AS “CREAMING”?

DON’T THERE NEED TO BE WINNERS AND LOSERS OR ELSE HAS ANYTHING CHANGED?


Slide15 l.jpg

HASN’T THERE BEEN MORE CHANGE IN WELFARE REFORM IN LESS THAN A DECADE THAN IN SUPPORTED EMPLOYMENT IN 20+ YEARS?

WHY WEREN’T GROUPS LIKE APSE FULLY BEHIND DOING AWAY WITH SUB MINIMUM WAGE (E.G., AZ)?


Slide16 l.jpg

WHY CAN’T MH AND DD SYSTEM ADVOCATES WORK TOGETHER MORE ON EMPLOYMENT - BIAS ON BOTH SIDES (W.SAME POOR RESULTS = 20-25%)?

DO WE HAVE TOO MANY PLANS AND SUMMITS AND CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE AND NOT ENOUGH SIMPLE MEASURES OF SUCCESS TO GUIDE US?


Slide17 l.jpg

WHAT TYPES OF EMPLOYMENT OPTIONS SHOULD WE ENCOURAGE?

ANY? SOME? ALL?

KEYS ARE REAL ECONOMIC ENGAGEMENT, RESOURCES, AND CITIZENSHIP NOT JUST SERVICE INTERVENTIONS


Slide18 l.jpg

YOU CAN HAVE A JOB WITHOUT A CAREER BUT YOU CAN’T HAVE A CAREER WITHOUT A JOB!

(YOU CAN’T DISCOVER WHAT ISN’T THERE)


Slide19 l.jpg

REMAINING UNEMPLOYED IS WORSE FOR YOU THAN BEING EMPLOYED IS GOOD FOR YOU.AVOIDING LONG TERM UNEMPLOYMENT IS A BETTER OPTION THAN WAITING FOR AN IDEAL OR PERFECT JOB MATCH.

Vision of inclusion joe marrone l.jpg

VISION OF INCLUSIONJOE MARRONE

IS WORK THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF LIFE FOR EVERYONE?

NO. BUT IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF LIFE THAT WE IN HUMAN SERVICES ARE LEAST SUCCESSFUL AT HELPING OUR CONSTITUENCY ACHIEVE.


Vision of recovery l.jpg

VISION OF RECOVERY

“Increasing employment for people with mental illness is one of the most urgent priorities in today’s mental health system” Mike Hogan

I worry about l.jpg

I WORRY ABOUT:

  • DISCRIMINATION NOT STIGMA

  • BEHAVIOR NOT ATTITUDE

  • CITIZENSHIP/CIVIL RIGHTS NOT CONSUMERISM

  • POWER/CONTROL NOT CONSUMERISM

  • COMPETENCY NOT COURTESY

  • ECONOMIC ENAGAGEMENT/ JOBS/ CAREERS NOT VOCATIONAL PROGRAMMING


Outcomes that should be sought if inclusion is more than a slogan l.jpg

OUTCOMES THAT SHOULD BE SOUGHT IF INCLUSION IS MORE THAN A SLOGAN

“ Transparent and measurable indicators of care should be used as a basis for quality improvement and for accountability.”

2008 Interim Report NY Statewide Comprehensive Plan for Mental Health Services


Outcomes that should be sought if inclusion is more than a slogan26 l.jpg

OUTCOMES THAT SHOULD BE SOUGHT IF INCLUSION IS MORE THAN A SLOGAN

  • Employment and educational outcomes

  • Housing outcomes

  • For people w. MI: Course of illness, including hospitalizations & distressing symptoms and/ or self - injurious behavior

  • Community participation/ citizenship

  • Less Public Income support

  • Client satisfaction with their own lives

  • Client satisfaction with services


Peter drucker l.jpg

PETER DRUCKER

“ THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN COMMUNICATION IS TO HEAR WHAT IS NOT BEING SAID”


Outcomes that should be sought in community services l.jpg

OUTCOMES THAT SHOULD BE SOUGHT IN COMMUNITY SERVICES

BECOMING A BETTER PERSON AND “SELF REALIZATION” IS THE PERSON’S RESPONSIBILITY.

HELPING PEOPLE GET EMPLOYED, GET HOUSING, STAY OUT OF HOSPITAL (& JAIL) AND REDUCE SYMPTOM IMPACT ARE STAFF’S RESPONSIBLITIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE PERSON.

5 signs to recognize system change56 l.jpg

5 SIGNS TO RECOGNIZE SYSTEM CHANGE:

  • CHANGE IN POWER: Designated positions—people with formal authority—responsible for the new activity (not just individuals who care about it).


5 signs to recognize system change57 l.jpg

5 SIGNS TO RECOGNIZE SYSTEM CHANGE:

  • CHANGE IN MONEY: Routine funding is earmarked for the new activity in a new way [new money, shift in existing funding, or new priorities & criteria for accessing money].


5 signs to recognize system change58 l.jpg

5 SIGNS TO RECOGNIZE SYSTEM CHANGE:

  • CHANGE IN HABITS: Participants in a system interact with each other to carry out the new activity as part of their normal routine not just respond to special initiatives, demonstrations, or projects.


5 signs to recognize system change59 l.jpg

5 SIGNS TO RECOGNIZE SYSTEM CHANGE:

  • CHANGE IN TECHNOLOGY OR SKILLS:

    Growing cadre of skilled practitioners at most levels in the delivery chain, practicing methods not previously common or considered desirable. Practitioners are now expert in skills that new system demands & have set a standard for effective delivery of results.


5 signs to recognize system change60 l.jpg

5 SIGNS TO RECOGNIZE SYSTEM CHANGE:

  • CHANGE IN IDEAS OR VALUES:

    New definition of performance or success, & often a new understanding of the people to be served & the problem to be solved [i.e., new goals]. The new definition & understanding are commonly held among most actors in the system, & are no longer in great dispute

SO WHAT SHOULD SYSTEM/ PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS DO ???:

Clear Policy statement from funding authority and program administration that:

Assisting people to enter employment is integral to the overall mission of agency/ providers and thus inherent in the responsibilities of all its staff & providers,

even those not explicitly charged with employment service responsibility

NOT JUST EMPLOYMENT FIRST IN PLAN BUT EMPLOYMENT OUTCOMES


Slide63 l.jpg

SO WHAT SHOULD SYSTEM/ PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS DO ???:

  • LINK WITH EMPLOYMENT AT TIME OF ENTRY INTO SERVICES (PART OF INTAKE AND INITIAL APPT)

  • DELINK CLINICAL APPROVAL FROM EMPLOYMENT

  • ACTIVELY ENCOURAGE EMPLOYMENT AT MGMT/ CLINICAL LEVELS IN TERMS OF HOW ADMINISTRATORS INTEGRATE IT INTO TOTAL SERVICE SYSTEM

  • CONSUMERS ACTIVELY SOUGHT FOR JOBS AT ALL LEVELS NOT JUST PEER ROLES (MODELING FOR BUSINESS)

  • EMPLOYMENT ON ALL SERVICE PLANS IF PERSON UNEMPLOYED AT LEAST 3 MONTHS

  • ALL STAFF RECEIVE /ORIENTATION AND SOME TRAINING NOT JUST ON EMPLOYMENT BUT ALSO DANGERS OF UNEMPLOYMENT

  • FOCUS ON EMPLOYMENT NOT JOB RETENTION


Slide64 l.jpg

SO WHAT SHOULD SYSTEM/ PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS DO ???:

  • EMPLOYMENT OUTCOMES IDENTIFIED FOR SYSTEM AS A WHOLE NOT JUST FOR EMPLOYMENT PROGRAMS

  • OUTCOMES TRACKED AND DISSEMINATED TO BOTH THE PROGRAM AND COMMUNITY AT LARGE

  • RESULTS GET COMPARED TO PEOPLE WITHOUT DISABILITIES IN TERMS OF WAGES, UNEMPLOYMENT RATE, POVERTY

  • TRACK WAGES IN TERMS OF WEEKLY WAGES NOTHOURS X HOURLY WAGE


Slide65 l.jpg

SO WHAT SHOULD SYSTEM/ PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS DO ???:

  • OUTCOME BASED FUNDING/ MILESTONES

  • SYSTEM CREATES INCENTIVES FOR EMPLOYMENT AND DISINCENTIVES FOR NOT ADDRESSING UNEMPLOYMENT – ULTIMATELY UNLESS THERE ARE FUNDING WINNERS AND LOSERS NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED

  • PEOPLE SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO THINK OF GETTING OFF SSA OR TANF AS A SUCCESS, NOT A DISINCENTIVE

  • BE CLEAR THAT MOTIVATION IS STAFF’S JOB

SPECIFIC ISSUES FOR YOUTH (16-25)

  • BETTER LINKAGE WITH TRANSITION TYPE SERVICES

  • YOUTH NEED MORE DIRECTION

  • PLANNING LESS IMPORTANT THAN ACTION- IMMEDIACY

  • JOBS THAT WE SHY AWAY FROM FOR ADULTS MORE AND MORE (FOOD, FILTH, FLOWERS ETC ETC) ARE MORE ATTRACTIVE & APPROPRIATE FOR YOUTH

  • DON’T TRY TO GET YOUTH TO ACT LIKE ADULTS IN TERMS OF JOB/ EMPLOYMENT STABILITY

ANY DEAD HORSES IN YOUR ORGANIZATION?(TAKEN FROM MATERIAL FROM ARTHUR EVANS, PH.D., FORMER DEPUTY COMMR, CT DMHAS), NOW MH DIRECTOR, PHILA MH


Slide77 l.jpg

Dakota tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. However, in human services, we often try other strategies with dead horses, including the following:


Slide78 l.jpg

* Saying things like “This is the way we have always ridden this horse.”or from a Native American Tribal Saying:"If we don't turn around now, we just may get where we're going."


Slide79 l.jpg

* Appointing a committee to study the horse.* Harnessing several dead horses together for greater performance* Providing additional funding to increase the horse’s performance* Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses


Slide80 l.jpg

* Increasing the standards to ride dead horses* Creating a training session to increase our riding ability* Changing the requirements; declaring “this horse is not dead.” * Declaring the horse is “better, faster and cheaper” dead* Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position
