What is Person Centered Planning? (PCP)
  • PCP is the way people plan for their lives with
    help from people who care. One result from
    planning is a Person-Centered-Plan, also called
    an IPOS. Person-Centered Planning is different
    from the old way of treatment planning. In the
    old way, professionals met to create a way to
    fix what was wrong with their clients.
  • Person-Centered Planning tries to 1) Figure out
    what a person wants in life and 2) Work together
    as a team to help them reach their goals.

Who Can Have a PCP?
  • Anyone getting mental health services through a
    community mental health organization has the
    right to a Person-Centered-Plan.

How Do You Know Your Planning is
  • Person-Centered
  • Focus is on you your lifes goals, choices,
    strengths and abilities
  • You are spoken to and not about
  • The plan that comes from the meeting shows the
    real you.
  • If you cant get exactly what you want, your team
    works with you to reach a good plan B

  • You can choose to run the meeting yourself, or
    choose someone to do it for you
  • You can have meetings any time your goals,
    wishes, or needs change not just annually
  • You can invite the people you want to come to
    your meeting
  • The meeting takes place at the time and place you

  • Team looks at what you want to achieve
  • Services are linked to reach those goals
  • Theres a way to measure how youre doing

What Is Independent PCP Facilitation?
  • Independent (or external) facilitation lets you
    to choose a person to help you with your
    person-centered plan.
  • An Independent Facilitator (I.F.) does not work
    directly for the Community Mental Health system
    and must be trained in Person-Centered Planning.
  • An I.F. will help you get the respectful,
    effective plan that you deserve.

Who Can Get I.F.?
  • The Michigan Department of Community Health says
    that each mental health consumer gets to choose
    and Independent Facilitator to help them plan.

Why Have an Independent Facilitator?
  • There are many good reasons to get help from an
    independent facilitator including
  • Time PCP Facilitators work with a small number
    of people at a time. This means lots of time to
    focus on you and your concerns. 
  • Individual Attention PCP Facilitators dont
    have a huge case load. This means you get the
    attention you need.

  • Objectivity PCP Facilitators are independent.
    They dont work for any one case management
    company or service provider.
  •  Advocacy Your PCP Facilitator is on your side.
  •  Teamwork Working together as a team is what
    its all about. Your PCP Facilitator knows how to
    draw your team together to work for you!

Who Can Facilitate a Person-Centered Planning
  • Unpaid Facilitator
  • You dont have to have a trained I.F. facilitate
    your meeting. You could also ask a family member
    or friend to help facilitate your meeting.
  • You could facilitate your meeting yourself.
  • Anybody who hasnt met the Community Mental
    Health providers requirements can be an unpaid

Who Can Facilitate a Person-Centered Planning
  • Paid Facilitators
  • Many people use an Independent Facilitator who is
    suggested by their Community Mental Health
  • These people come from all walks of life. Some
    have disabilities. Some have family or friends
    with a disability.
  • A paid independent facilitator has gone through
    the required training and is paid by the
    Community Mental Health provider.

Why Become an Independent Facilitator?
  • Theres nothing better than helping people
    achieve their dreams and goals nothing!
  • If you have ever wanted someone on your side, or
    if you have ever had someone in your corner,
    becoming an I.F. will give you the chance to do
    the same for someone else.
