Our Approach

We focus on:

“The opportunity to live in the community and to be valued for one’s uniqueness and abilities like everyone else.” (Salzer, 2006)

The Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion a) targets obstacles that prevent people with mental illnesses from being full members of their communities; b) identifies the supports consumers and communities need to enhance the prospects for community integration; and c) expands the range of opportunities for people who have mental illnesses to participate in their communities as active and equal members.  This work supports United States laws and policies, especially those associated with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Supreme Court Olmstead Decision.

This website provides access to both our research and training center activities supported by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and our growing base of international, federal, state, and other funded projects aimed at developing and supporting policies, programs, and practices that promote community integration.

We provide evidence-based resources that consumers, agencies, and policy makers can use to increase community participation across varied life domains. Use this website to keep track of the Temple University Collaborative’s work, follow our research and training activities, access tool-kits and monographs, explore exemplary program descriptions focusing on key issues, and contact us for additional information and targeted training and technical assistance.
