The NH Lived Experience Workforce Advancement Blueprint is being drafted to present actionable directions for development and enhancement of the workforce of individuals with lived experience across New Hampshire’s mental health system. This workforce development objective is a stated priority in the 10-Year Mental Health Plan and central to several strategic objectives.
Stakeholder input has been critically important to informing the draft action recommendations contained in the Blueprint. Virtual feedback sessions on September 30, 2020; October 20, 2020; and December 4, 2020 were attended by representatives from Peer Support Agencies, Community Mental Health Centers, Community Advocates, Leadership of the NH Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Mental Health Services, and many other individuals with lived experience working across the mental health system.
The public comment period for feedback on the draft action recommendations in the NH Lived Experience Workforce Advancement Blueprint is now open, closing on December 31, 2020.
All feedback will be reviewed by the NH Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Mental Health Services, NAMI New Hampshire, and Humannovations. You may choose to include contact information, or to submit your comments anonymously. While all feedback will be reviewed and considered, incorporation into the Blueprint is not guaranteed.
A more comprehensive draft of the NH Lived Experience Workforce Advancement Blueprint, including definition of terms, extended process review, analysis of current lived experience workforce, and logic model will be publicly released on January 20, 2021. A final public comment period, opened with the release, will close on January 31, 2021.
The final version of the NH Lived Experience Workforce Advancement Blueprint will be made available in the first quarter of 2021.
