Assessing Health, Promoting Wellness
The inspiration for this guide grew out of conversations with PATH contacts in various states who indicated a high level of interest in providing trainings for front-line PATH providers on the general topic of health care issues for non-medical providers.

The guide also describes a person-centered, trauma-informed, and recovery-oriented framework of caring that is key to providing services effectively. The authors hope that this framework of
