Emily Treichler, MA

Emily is a fifth year in the SMI group. Her general interests are in treatment of SMI, particularly bridging evidence-based practice and consumer needs in community treatment settings. She is interested in increasing the utility and dissemination of empirically supported and recovery-oriented treatment modalities in typical treatment settings. She is also focused on greater policy and systems issues for people with SMI and understanding how to improve services and quality of life for people with SMI through policy.

Emily’s placement for the year 2014-2015 is with Disability Rights Nebraska (DRN). She is collaborating with Eric Evans of DRN and Alan Green of the Mental Health Association of Nebraska to develop and pilot test a skills training intended to increase provider-consumer communication and collaboration.
