Event description
Key Policy Challenges to Improve Care for People with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

About this Event

The Forum on Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders is hosting its first public workshop, Key Policy Challenges to Improve Care for People with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders, on October 15-16, 2019. This first workshop will provide an overview of 5 key policy challenges to improve care for people with mental health and substance use disorders. The workshop will explore issues related to:

  • Promoting person-centered care, patient and family member engagement and shared decision making
  • Defining what constitutes minimally adequate care for mental health and substance use disorders for different types of providers and in different care settings
  • Identifying promising strategies to translate knowledge to practice and to monitor implementation
  • Highlighting innovative practices to facilitate and optimize data collection, integration, and use
  • Improving care spanning the medical, mental health, and substance use disorder workforce and care delivery systems

It is expected that subsequent workshops will continue to build on this foundational work, examining key issues in greater detail.

The workshop will also be live webcast. We encourage you to register in advance for the webcast. During the days of the workshop, the webcast will be available on the workshop page: http://nationalacademies.org/hmd/Activities/MentalHealth/MentalHealthSubstanceUseDisorderForum/2019-OCT-15.aspx

A week following the workshop, the recorded webcast and the speaker PowerPoints will be archived on the workshop page (http://nationalacademies.org/hmd/Activities/MentalHealth/MentalHealthSubstanceUseDisorderForum/2019-OCT-15.aspx).
