CoE Office Hour: Resources for Advancing Oral health Coordination & Integration

Uncoordinated oral and behavioral health care and lack of access to care can drastically exacerbate existing health disparities, increase health care costs and result in poor overall health outcomes for those living with mental health and/or substance use challenges. Models of care that are coordinated and integrated can more effectively respond to patients’ past experiences and conditions and have the potential to reduce costs, improve outcomes and improve patients’ accessibility to care as well as the experiences associated with the delivery of care.

To address the growing need for oral and behavioral health care integration, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in partnership with Bowling Business Strategies, will be launching an exciting ECHO to expand and scale oral health integration models outlined in the recent toolkit, Oral Health, Mental Health & Substance Use Treatment: A Framework for Care Coordination & Integration. 

Join us on Tuesday, January 25, from 3 –4 p.m. ET for our upcoming office hour, Resources for Advancing Oral Health Coordination and Integration to hear from subject matter experts and learn more about the upcoming Oral Health Integration ECHO.

CoE Office Hour: New Resources to Advance Health Equity through Integrated Health & Clinical Practice

Systemic racism continues to have a negative impact on historically marginalized communities, creating disproportionate challenges around access to and quality of mental health, substance use recovery services and physical health care. These challenges result in significantly poorer mental health outcomes for Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) and others with marginalized identities.   

To decrease trauma and re-traumatization, build resiliency, strengthen engagement to mitigate health inequities and eliminate challenges faced by their clients and staff of color, organizations must address and strengthen their clinical and organizational practices and further integrated health care. 

Join us to learn more about general organizational considerations and resources developed by the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions (CoE) to advance diversity, equity and engagement within your organization during our CoE-IHS Office Hour session on Thursday, January 27, from 1-2 p.m. ET 

We will also discuss an upcoming ECHO opportunity that will provide a safe space for peer-to-peer learning and open discussions among a group of health provider organizations committed to advancing integrated care to improve health equity for staff and clients. 

Office Hour: CCBHC Criteria Series: Optimizing Staffing in the CCBHC Model

The first topic of the series, “Optimizing Staffing in the CCBHC Model” will explore various elements of the CCBHC staffing criteria, common workforce challenges or considerations within behavioral health and discuss tactics or approaches CCBHCs can take to optimize their staffing model.

CoE Office Hour: Transforming Care Delivery and Addressing the Workforce Shortage through Short-term Policy Action

The National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in collaboration with Health Management Associates (HMA), has prepared a series of three issue briefs to offer immediate actions states can take to expand current capacity and build a more stable future mental health and substance use treatment workforce.  

The national workforce shortage, intensified by the psychological distress of the global COVID-19 pandemic, continues to impact organizations’ ability to hire and retain staff. This national crisis creates concerns as the demand for mental health and substance use treatment services increases and intensifies pressure on an already overburdened health care workforce.  

 The recommendations made in these briefs will improve access to treatment services by transforming care delivery to optimize the current workforce, building partnerships across communities to cultivate a pipeline of new workforce members and promoting innovative digital solutions to expand the workforce.  

Join us on Monday, January 31, from 1-2 p.m. ET  to hear from a panel of experts as they discuss policy relief solutions, focusing on clinical care delivery models and digital solutions to improve delivery of care through COVID-19 and beyond.
