SOAR Online Course: Child Curriculum
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers the SOAR Online Course: Child Curriculum for free. This self-paced training is intended for case managers to assist children and youth who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness and have a serious mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder to apply for the Social Security Administration's disability program—Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
The course features seven classes and includes articles, videos, and short quizzes; an opportunity to practice completing an SSI application for a fictional applicant using information gathered through video interviews, medical records, and progress notes provided throughout the course; and individualized feedback from experts at the SAMHSA SOAR Technical Assistance Center. This course takes about 20 hours to complete.
