With numerous emerging threats to Medicaid and behavioral health services, the National Council will hold biweekly policy webinars to update our members on the latest news and advocacy opportunities out of Washington. We will monitor and update our members on issues that matter most, including: the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, proposed reforms to Medicaid and details on government spending for behavioral health care programs.

Note: Each webinar will feature a specific Call to Action for National Council members. Please prepare and plan for a year of persistent advocacy and engagement with your legislators. We must ensure that our voices, and those of your clients, are heard in Congress.

Serious Mental Illness and Opioid Use Disorders

Date: Mon., March 13, 2017, 2:30  p.m. ET
Register: https://nasmhpd.adobeconnect.com/opioiddisorders_reg/event/event_info.html

Individuals with an opioid use disorder (OUD) frequently suffer from serious mental illness (SMI). In fact, over half of patients with bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia have a co-occurring substance use disorder. Because co-occurring disorders can be difficult to manage and care outcomes respond best to comprehensive treatment delivered by culturally competent practices it is important for providers to understand the benefits of medication assisted treatment (MAT). During the webinar:

  • Learn the evidence base for treating OUD and co-occurring disorders simultaneously
  • Understand the benefits and advantages of utilizing MAT for individuals with SMI
  • Be empowered to utilize and translate evidenced-based behavioral health skills to diagnose and manage SMI among patients with OUD
