Places for People’s Tim McKay and graduates of Maryville University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program presented a new assessment to help people living with severe mental illness and substance use disorders at a national conference last weekend.
Places for People’s Tim McKay and graduates of Maryville University’s Master of Occupational Therapy program will be making a presentation on Saturday at the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans.
A collaborative project between six Maryville University students and Places for People produced a new assessment that might one day be used worldwide to help people living with mental illness improve social participation and community integration.
Members of the Maryville University Student Occupational Therapy Association spent part of their spring break giving back, dropping off a donation of “blessing bags” for the Places for People Welcome Center. The bags include easy to carry necessities.
