Behavioral Health Community of Practice - Strengthening Kentuckians' Mental Health

About this event

It Takes a Community - A Call to Action for Kentucky Healthcare Providers

Join us as we bring providers together from across the Commonwealth to be part of a Behavioral Health Community of Practice. Mental health experts will share ideas and best practices to optimize care for Kentuckians.

The pandemic has worsened the behavioral health challenges Kentuckians face, and more solutions are needed to address this mounting problem. That’s why it’s more important than ever to share knowledge and best practices among providers along the behavioral health care continuum.

The Behavioral Health Community of Practice, organized by UK HealthCare & Kentucky REC, will connect primary care providers, specialists and organizations through learning sessions where behavioral health experts will present best practices, tools and resources to optimize care.

The Community of Practice (COP) will consist of monthly one-hour webinars October 2022 through May 2023 from noon – 1 pm. The webinars will include educational sessions, best practice overviews, interactive trainings on tools and resources, and group discussions.
