- MONEY! – A PROS Benefits and Financial Management Curriculum: MONEY is a Benefits and Financial Management (CRS-BFM) service that assists PROS participants in understanding money and their relationship to it. This group is designed as a foundation service which explores basic money management concepts such as needs vs. wants; fixed vs. discretionary costs; creating a money plan (or budget) which covers expenses as well as building a “cushion” (or savings) and avoiding money “traps” such as gambling and retail payment plans. The curriculum attempts to normalize the discomfort people can experience when talking about money matters. It takes a harm-reduction stance regarding spending on substances, gambling and other “costly pleasures”. It is rooted in the belief that financial stability is a critical aspect of the recovery process. Created by NYC OMH and the Coalition of Behavioral Health.
