LGBTQ+ Integrated Care Part 2: Strategies for Supporting the Integrated Care Needs of LGBTQ+ Youth

Due to historic marginalization and discrimination, LGBTQ+ individuals face health disparities and challenges in access to inclusive healthcare. Individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ are more likely to report chronic physical health conditions, experience mental health challenges at higher rates, and are at greater risk for substance use challenges. LGBTQ+ youth are especially vulnerable to experiencing negative health outcomes, including suicidal ideation and substance use challenges, and unique barriers to inclusive health care. To improve access to care and quality of care for LGBTQ+ youth in particular, it is important to consider clinical perspectives and strategies to address their needs.

Join us for the second webinar in our two-part LGBTQ+ Integrated Care webinar series, Strategies for Supporting the Integrated Care Needs of LGBTQ+ Youth, on Thursday, July 29th, from 1:00-2:00pm ET to hear from integrated health experts who will explore health disparities, protective factors among LGBTQ+ youth, and strategies for providers working with LGBTQ+ youth and families, including clinical considerations and providing whole-person care, with special focus on transgender youth.

Integrated Care & Law Enforcement: Lessons Learned from Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs)

People with mental health, and substance use challenges are overrepresented in criminal justice system and law enforcement settings, and approximately 40% of incarcerated individuals have at least one chronic health condition, such as diabetes or hypertension. Partnerships between law enforcement agencies and integrated health care organizations help to reduce these health disparities and improve access to whole person care among individuals involved in the justice system.

This webinar will explore a recent research project that surveyed the role of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) in law enforcement settings to address community-based mental health, physical health, and crisis needs against the backdrop of racial inequities. Research findings, including barriers, successes, and outcomes of partnerships will be shared during this webinar.

CoE Office Hours: Advancing Health Equity Starts with Us

July is Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month – a month dedicated to growing public awareness of mental health topics, including mental illness among communities of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC).

To celebrate and contribute to this growing awareness, join us as we discuss how advancing health equity requires personal learning, reflection and growth to understand health disparities and injustices, especially among communities of color and other marginalized communities. This individual process requires time and commitment to equip individuals to address health equity and health disparities among clients and take action within their organizations and communities, while also supporting wellbeing of staff.
Join us on Wednesday, July 14 from 12-1 p.m. ET, as health equity and racial justice experts reflect on the connections between advancing equity, first as an individual, then as an organization and, finally, as part of a larger community. Strategies to pursue health equity at each level will be discussed, with particular focus on the individual level.

This session will feature expert speakers, including:
• Maura Gaswirth, LICSW, Director, Practice Improvement and Consulting, National Council for Mental Wellbeing

Managing Risk for Your CCBHC with MHRRG and Negley Associates

Becoming a CCBHC means promoting rapid access to care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay, and that requires transformational clinical adaptations to expand your array of services and staffing structure. Understanding your vulnerabilities and employing the right risk management strategies can help protect your staff and organization.

Knowing the most up-to-date evidence-based processes and how to deliver them can reduce the chances of a breach of the standard of care you provide. In this webinar we examined risk management considerations for CCBHCs and best practices to protect you and your organization.
