Session #1 Housing and Homelessness in America and its Impact on Persons with Behavioral Health Challenges

Housing needs are one of the largest challenges facing people served in Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs), and local housing providers are often unaware of the support opportunities available to their residents within the CCBHCs in their communities. The CCBHC-E NTTAC (National Training and Technical Assistance Center) is partnering with the Corporation of Supportive Housing (CSH) to host 4 sessions educating CCBHC (Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics) grantees about the information needed to build a quality and sustainable partnership between CCBHCs and the housing sector.     

Session 1 will cover the national homeless system requirements such as Continuums of Care (COC) and their boards, Coordinated Entry, and Homelessness Management Information Systems. CCBHC participants will leave the session with foundational knowledge and ready to build partnerships with their local homelessness systems.
