Our 2019 edition of our yearly calendar is based on community participation as a medical necessity. The Temple University Collaborative recently conducted a study in which participants met with a recovery coach to develop their recovery goals and identify activities they were interested in that facilitated their mental health and wellness. The recovery coach and participants then worked together to submit requests for the resources to a managed care company for approval. Each request was assessed for medical necessity and was approved or denied based on whether or not the participant justified the request to improve his or her recovery. Once these requests were approved, participants received “freedom funds,” which they used to purchase the resource they had requested. This calendar features actual resource requests from participants to give you inspiration in creating your own ideas for enhancing mental health and wellness.
