Course Overview

Individuals with serious mental illness die 10 to 20 years earlier than individuals who do not have a serious mental illness (Liu et al., 2017). Data shows that this trend is getting worse; individuals with serious mental illness are dying even earlier and most often from preventable causes. As a professional working with adults with serious mental illness, you are well-poised to help your clients address the preventable causes of premature death through the utilization of recovery-oriented, evidence-based practices. In this course, you will learn about the core values underlying the Illness Management and Recovery (IMR) model, recent adaptations of the IMR model, how IMR can support you in addressing both physical and mental health symptoms, and how the approach’s teaching principles can support your clients with serious mental illness manage and recover from their illnesses. This course provides an overview of IMR practices. Through the use of interactive exercises and detailed vignettes, the course will give you the information and techniques you need to make IMR an effective part of your therapeutic toolbox. The content in this course is applicable to nurse practitioners, nurses, alcohol and drug counselors, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, psychologists, and clinical social workers in human services settings. Inclusion of SAMHSA content does not constitute or imply endorsement or recommendation by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or the U.S. Government.
