Employment & Economic Self-Sufficiency Tool Kit

Poverty and dependency are two of the most important barriers to psychiatric rehabilitation, recovery and wellness. Our conversations with hundreds of people in recovery have shown us that most of them have a strong desire to work, earn higher income, gain control over their personal finances, build assets, and achieve greater levels of self-sufficiency.

 

NYAPRS, with the assistance of OMH, has produced an Employment and Economic Self-Sufficiency Tool Kit. The Tool Kit provides comprehensive curriculum and resources that help people in recovery move towards employment and greater self-sufficiency.
