Our partners.

Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion for Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities

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.

Our values.

Inclusion and community membership.

People with disabilities should be included as full members of the community, while receiving necessary support from committed, skilled professionals.

Full citizenship and fundamental rights.

People with disabilities should have the chance to take full advantage of their civil and individual rights – and the support needed to exercise those rights.

Independent and productive living.

Everyone should have the opportunity to live their life as independently and productively as possible – and access to the support they need to continually expand those opportunities.

Safe and healthy lives.

Safety isn’t an option – it’s a fundamental human right. People with disabilities should receive the support they need to make safe and healthy decisions to maximize the benefits they receive for their own medical, dental and mental health care.

Choice and self-determined lives.

People with disabilities have the right to make their own decisions about their lives, including about the support they receive, where they live and with whom.

Sustained and valued relationships.

Every person with a disability should receive the support they need to have a family and social, spiritual and intimate relationships.

Competent and effective support.

Anyone who relies on others to fulfill basic rights, needs and responsibilities should have a direct care worker with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to do so effectively.

Stable and dependable support.

People who depend on others to live and fulfill their basic rights deserve ongoing stability and dependability from every care professional.

Ethical, value-based treatment.

Every person with a disability should receive support based on ethics and values that reflect a commitment to civil rights, freedom, privacy, autonomy and equality.
