The Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services’ Division of Disability and Behavioral Health Services-Mental Health (SRS DBHS MH), in partnership with the Division of Human Services of Sedgwick County and COMCARE of Sedgwick County and Wyandot Center for Behavioral Healthcare, Inc., Bert Nash Mental Health Center and Elizabeth Layton Center is holding SSI/SSDSI Outreach, Access and Recovery (SOAR) trainings to increase access to SSI/SSDI for people with disabilities, especially persons who are homeless. The curriculum, Stepping Stones for Recovery,was developed by Policy Research Associates from Delmar New York.
This year Kansas is offering two types of SOAR trainings: 1) A four-hour refresher training for individuals who have participated in a Kansas Across Kansas SOAR training but need extra support to implement the strategies, and 2) two-day direct service training for individuals who are new to the SOAR approach. The registration form has the dates for the each training. All trainings are free.
