Evidence-Based Practice: What It Is and Why Itís Important to Family Advocates

In this audio-visual webcast, learn what makes a mental health service qualify for designation as an “evidence-based practice” (EBP), and why that matters to family members and other advocates. National experts describe how research evidence is “graded” to reflect its quality, characterize the level of evidence for NAMI family-led education, and discuss EBPs in mental health care such as supported employment. The leader of a statewide NAMI organization offers a family perspective on EBP, and discusses how to advocate for research to advance the status of promising practices in your community.
