Synopsis of the Topic

In the May PASRR webinar, Dr. O'Connor and Dr. Spinelli discussed effective practices in developing PASRR evaluation reports for persons with mental illness. The National Association of PASRR Professionals (NAPP) is in the process of reviewing such practices in order to provide guidance on ways to improve states' reporting of PASRR findings related to persons with mental illness. This webinar included a presentation of NAPP's preliminary findings and a discussion of states' own best practices.
