In this webinar, representatives from the SAMHSA SOAR TA Center and the Social Security Administration (SSA) will discuss the new revisions to the Mental Disorder Listings. SSA will present background and key policy details and the SOAR TA Center will describe what this means for SOAR providers in terms of documenting disability and functioning.
The SOAR TA Center will also describe the updates that have been made to the SOAR Online Course and other key resources. We will share newly revised SOAR documents which reflect these changes so that the SOAR community is ready when these changes go into effect on January 17, 2017!
