Temple CCI Seeks Agencies to Partner on Research on Community Participation

Research Participant Opportunity:

Examining the Influence of Environmental Factors on Community Participation

The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion is looking for mental health agencies from throughout the United States and territories to serve as partners in a future research study that will examine the community participation of persons with psychiatric disabilities.

The partnering agencies would designate a staff member to help us distribute information about the study to individuals who receive services at the agency. The study would involve a single interview lasting less than one hour. Participants would be compensated for their time.

We anticipate that staff time needed for this effort would be minimal, and the process would take less than two months. In return, partnering agencies will receive a report about the community participation of program participants (across all individuals - no individual data will be able to be shared) and the opportunity to be a special partner of the Collaborative and obtain in-depth technical assistance on topics in which the TU Collaborative has expertise. This includes how to use survey results for program improvement, recovery and community inclusion data collection, and community inclusion policies, programs, and practices.

If your agency would be interested in partnering with us on this study, please e-mail Shadiya Moss atshadiya.moss@temple.eduor(215) 204-3230to let us know.
