Self-Management Support (SMS) is a long-term, continuous process toward recovery involving the systematic provision of educational and supportive interventions by health care providers to improve clients’ skills in managing their own health issues. Goal setting through action plans, a key element of SMS, includes working with clients and their natural supports to formulate short-term objectives for their health and develop specific steps for crisis management.

This webinar explores how behavioral health organizations and providers can implement SMS with their clients specifically focusing on action planning. There is an overview of Resources for Integrated Care’s Action Plan Selection Guide along with other tools and models for supporting self-management. Following this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the key elements of action planning with clients to promote self-management
  2. Identify different evidence-based action planning selection guides, including the Wellness Recovery Action Plan and the Whole Health Management (WHAM) Plan
  3. Define supportive conversations with clients on the self-management of chronic conditions and mental illness using RIC client handouts

*Please note that since the webinar aired, there have been a few changes to the terminology associated with WRAP.  “Triggers” are now referred to as “stressors”. A “daily maintenance” plan is now referred to as a “daily plan”. Instead of the word “symptoms”, the word “experiences” is used.

  • Larry Fricks, Deputy Director, SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions
  • Matthew Federici, WRAP Facilitator, Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery
  • Ellen Hochberg, Certified Recovery Support Specialist, WRAP Facilitator, Thresholds, Inc.

Intended Audience:
