This session is a logical follow-up to the morning session, with a focus on implementation of innovation and change in behavioral health crisis systems. The morning session focused on: What is happening? What is needed? What are future prospects? This session focuses more on: How to do it?
This session provides detailed, in-depth descriptions of how some nationally recognized, cutting edge behavioral health crisis systems have been developed over time. The session focuses on opportunities in the environment, community partners, financing, collaboration across different levels and sectors of government, and the role of data, information systems and evaluation. The expectation is that these presentations will be the basis for lively discussion and dialogue with conference attendees.
