Who provides WSM services?

WSM can be provided by mental health staff and peer specialists who have received WSM training.

How long will WSM last?
The length of time varies based on a number of factors including the treatment setting, the length of stay of people in the treatment program, individual or group modality, use of the entire or selected parts of the curriculum, and frequency and pace of meetings. In general, it takes about a year to complete the entire curriculum in groups that meet weekly for about an hour. Some programs may offer WSM more than once a week. It is important to remember that there is not a correct length of time for the program.
