A cross-sectional survey is used to assess the financial education needs and barriers of adults with mental illness as perceived by human and social service professionals (n=188) attending Your Money, Your Goals (YMYG): a financial empowerment toolkit for Social Services Programs training workshops. Financial education training for YMYG was well attended by social service professionals and practitioners with minimum promotion by MSU Extension. Although the YMYG toolkit was well-received, the findings revealed that social services professionals suggested several adaptations to YMYG for use with individuals with cognitive impairments. Based on the survey findings, the development of a supplemental toolkit to complement the YMYG resource is needed to address the diverse financial needs of those living with mental illness. Supplemental toolkit development and initial pilot testing are planned.
