Thinking Skills for Work program added

The Mental Health Association is proud to announce Thinking Skills for Work, a new program funded through the Empower Kansas grant from United Health Care. The overall purpose of this new, innovative program is to improve employment outcomes by improving cognitive functioning in consumers with serious mental illness. The project will incorporate computerized cognitive training exercises, individualized skills training, integration with the Supported Employment team and employment activities, ongoing consultation with a Cognitive Specialist regarding difficulties encountered in the work place, and weekly consultation to ensure model fidelity. Dr. Susan McGurk, Boston University, developed the program and has been at MHA providing training on the model to the Thinking Skills for Work team these past few days. We are delighted to have her here sharing her expertise and getting our team ready to begin this exciting new program.
