CACTI’s Bebe Smith Presents a SAMHSA Sponsored Webinar June 3rd

A SAMHSA sponsored webinar presented by the National Alliance on Mental Illness and conducted by Critical Time Intervention consultant and trainer, Bebe Smith, will take place Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 2:00pm Eastern Time called Improving Access to Care: Critical Time Intervention to Help Transition People with Mental Illness out of Homelessness and Incarceration.”

The CTI model has been used to promote successful transitions from hospitals and other institutions such as jails and prisons to community living. It focuses on community integration and continuity of care by ensuring that a person has enduring ties to their community and support systems during these critical periods to avoid the likelihood of a repeating crisis. In research trials of CTI, there was a significant decrease in recurrent homelessness up to nine months after the intervention ended.

In this webinar, Bebe will discuss the building blocks of CTI, and describe several wide-scale implementation projects of CTI, in North Carolina, New Hampshire and Canada.
