Peer support services extend the reach of treatment beyond clinical settings into the everyday environment of your clients. Curious to learn more about how peer support services can enhance the services you provide to people with serious mental illness (SMI)?
Join us on Thursday, April 15th from 2 – 3 p.m. ET for our Office Hour session that will continue the conversation started on the webinar on April 13th, about the benefits of peer support services, research findings, practical guidelines on setting up peer support programs and how COVID-19 health challenges have affected peer support services for people with SMI.
Join us as we continue the conversation and share how you’re engaging and supporting individuals.
Due to structural racism, Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color (BIPOC) have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and other historic and ongoing environmental stressors. As a result, BIPOC individuals have persevered and shown resilience, both inside and outside of the workplace, despite the stress and re-traumatization that unintentionally occurs in these spaces. Now more than ever, behavioral health and primary healthcare organizations are positioned to support their BIPOC staff amid these stressors, through increasing acknowledgement, awareness, and skills to create a safe workplace environment that furthers staff retention, resiliency, and consequently, the overall well-being and impact of the organization.
Please join us for our Office Hour session on Thursday, April 22, from 3 to 4 p.m. ET to discuss strategies for supporting workforce development, retention, engagement, and overall wellbeing specifically among staff who identify as BIPOC. This session will feature expert panelists including Amelia Roeschlein, DSW, MA, LMFT (Consultant of Trauma Informed Services, National Council for Behavioral Health), Aaron Williams, MA (Integrated Care Consultant, National Council for Behavioral Health), Terence Fitzgerald, PhD, Ed.M., MSW (Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Children Youth & Families, USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work) and Pierluigi Mancini, PhD (President of Multicultural Development Institute, Inc.).
Integration of oral health and behavioral health requires a strategic framework to improve health outcomes, narrow health disparities, and lower health costs among both patients and providers. Core framework components include provider education, service provision, referrals, care management, and other integrated care activities. As more providers are exploring integrated oral health and behavioral health, a few organizations are leading the way, with success stories to share.
Join us on Tuesday, April 27th at 3:00pm ET to hear from The National Dental Association about opportunities to break down silos and increase health equity by advancing more integrated oral and behavioral health care. Participants will also hear from two providers, Community Health Centers of South-Central Texas and Options for Southern Oregon, about their on-the-ground efforts to integrate oral and behavioral health and recent patient success stories.
Join us on Thursday, April 29th from 2 – 3 p.m. ET for our Office Hour session that will continue the conversation started on the webinar on April 27th, about strategies for integrating oral health and behavioral health, and success stories.
