This report provides key findings and analysis of a survey related to Michigan workers who support self-directing individuals in the state’s Medicaid Community Mental Health (CMH) waiver programs. Data collected includes: demographic characteristics; wages and benefits; employment characteristics; worker satisfaction; training needs and interests.
