Thank you to all attendees of One of Five Listening Sessions on Shared Decision Making in Mental Health

These sessions were a follow-up to our annual meeting last April. We collected feedback about actions MassPRA could take in these areas:
  • Development of brief trainings that can be used within CBFS programs to promote shared decision-making
  • Development of assessments and tools designed to help people involved with prescribers to become more active participants in their treatment with prescribers
  • Identification of advocacy needs and strategies to promote shared decision-making by people served in the public mental health system in MA
