Making the Connection: Conversations Around Integrated Care (August Session)
When: Tuesday, August 9 - 10:00 AM
Duration: 1 hours 30 minutes
It is widely accepted that integrated care improves treatment outcomes and reduces the cost of care for individuals with both mental health and substance use diagnoses. Despite this, individuals frequently receive care for mental health treatment in one clinical setting and substance use treatment in another. Treatment providers, however, can play a key role both clinically and within their organization to promote integrated care in the same setting.
Join MCTAC, the Center for Practice Innovations (CPI), New York City's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) New York State's Office of Mental Health (NYS OMH) and Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS) in the second part of our series, Making the Connection: Conversations Around Integrated Care, where we explore strategies and approaches to integrating mental health and substance use treatment. Each interactive session will address and highlight key integration topic areas and will be followed by a case study discussion.
These meetings occur on a monthly basis and run from August 2022 - January 2023
