Maine DHHS holds Direct Care and Support Worker Listening Sessions
These listening sessions are focused on services provided by Personal Support Specialists (PSSs), Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), and Mental Health Rehabilitation Technicians (MHRTs). These front-line workers provide a range of services to older adults, people with physical and intellectual disabilities, including autism, and individuals with serious mental illness.
