Multi-Occurring Conditions: Bringing Brain Injury To The Table
The human service system landscape is divided into silos, separating people into distinct and separate categories, when the reality is one person may belong in any number of “silos” and categorizing our service system downgrades the understanding a person as a whole person, therefore, downgrades the quality of service that a person can receive when our funding streams, training, and service providers have also specialized their services.
BREAKING DOWN SILOS: Increasing provider capacity to serve those with multi-occurring disorders
Increasing knowledge of various disability functions as they interact with each other, understanding a person’s needs individually, building support plans based on needs is just one place to start.
