Help Your Community Afford Prescription Meds

February 12, 2019, 2 – 3 p.m. ET


Cost is the main reason people don’t take their prescription medications as prescribed.  This can lead to immediate and long-term health concerns and even greater financial burdens on the individual, their families and their communities. Familywize’s free Prescription Savings Program makes prescription medication more affordable. By working with nearly 100,000 partners nationwide they are providing free prescription savings cards and health and wellness programs to those in need. Join the National Council and Familywize for a special webinar to learn how you can help those in your community afford prescription medications. You will learn how to easily implement the FamilyWize Prescription program in your current work.


State of the Union: Behavioral Health

February 21, 2019, 1- 2 p.m. ET


This year we celebrate the 56th anniversary of the Community Mental Health Act – a major piece of federal legislation that helped create community mental health centers as we know them today. While the establishment of community mental health centers was an important milestone in our country’s efforts to provide quality care for some of our most vulnerable residents, a lot has changed in the mental health, and addiction, landscape since 1963. Behavioral health (mental health and addiction) is being brought out of the shadows and has become a major discussion point for many facets of our society – our healthcare system, education system, criminal justice system, and other domains. And growing rates of mental health and addiction disorders, coupled with recent changes in evidence-based treatment options, healthcare delivery, financing mechanisms, and policy guidelines mean the spotlight shines brighter than ever on the behavioral health field.

Join Chuck Ingoglia, Senior Vice President of Public Policy and Practice Improvement at the National Council for Behavioral Health, as he discusses the present landscape of behavioral health, and where the field is poised to go in the future.
