Mental Health and American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation: Dual Diagnosis and De-Escalation - 7/8/2021

The American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) Programs throughout the United States are located in very rural areas on government lands known as reservations. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, that is ongoing, numerous AIVRS programs are facing unprecedented numbers in mental health cases, in addition to their already staggering mental health caseloads due to social and economic constricts of the Native American/Alaskan Native reservations. This presentation addresses many of the issues that vocational rehabilitation programs face in their daily provision of services to American Indians/Alaskan Natives who are disabled and are attempting to reach their employment goals by overcoming obstacles to employment due to their disability.
