Adapting Together: Efficacy of Interventions to Address the Needs of Individuals with Brain Injury within HCH Sites

Friday, June 23, 2017: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Lafayette Park (Grand Hyatt Washington)
As HCH agencies seek to increase accessibility of their services, there has been a recent initiative to better address those experiencing brain injury. This presentation will review a pilot project to increase identification of brain injury for individuals receiving mental health therapy, and increase the skills of mental health providers to better engage these clients. Changes in mental health intervention approaches occur in conjunction with rehabilitation services, and this session will discuss the results of this approach to increase client engagement and overall outcomes of those receiving services.
