A recent study by Places for People’s Research and Evaluation Team appears in the June edition of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal. The study resulted from a program to serve older adults with mental illness that was funded by the Marillac Mission Fund (formerly Daughters of Charity Foundation of St. Louis).
The Journal of Mental Health, an international peer-reviewed journal, recently published the results of a five-year project at Places for People to provide specialized substance use and mental health services to more than 300 people who were experiencing homelessness, alcohol use disorders, and often co-occurring mental health disorders.
A profile of Places for People and the upcoming Certified Community Behavioral Health Center demonstration program is featured in a special report on behavioral health by Modern Healthcare, a weekly, national publication.
Harris Meyer, senior reporter for Modern Healthcare, spent the day conducting interviews at Places for People and in the community on April 17. Meyer is working on a story about the upcoming Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHC) demonstration program, which begins July 1. The story will appear in the May 28 edition Modern Healthcare.
