DirectCourse | College of Recovery and Community Inclusion centers on helping people with mental health conditions recover and continue their lives within their own communities. To help make our mission a reality, we provide training for mental health practitioners based on the latest research and established best practices. By empowering organizations with measurable competencies and online training, we can measurably increase satisfaction for both practitioners and clients.
For industry-leading research to include in all of our courses, we partner with the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities. Their state-of-the-art research and cutting-edge knowledge translation activities seek both to broaden understanding about community inclusion and to improve opportunities for individuals with psychiatric disabilities to participate more fully in community life. Identifying the critical support and resources necessary for increased participation in community life, practitioners learn how to address the many barriers to inclusion faced by individuals living with mental health conditions. Together, we can create and deliver standardized training courses to increase quality and satisfaction in our industry.
To ensure that our training is in line with best practices in direct support, we include National Advisory Board and National Editorial Board in our content creation process.Meet our board members
