Webinar Alert – The Tsunami of Need is Coming: Integrated Care in the Era of COVID-19

HMA is cohosting a webinar with the College for Behavioral Health Leadership.

Thursday, June 25, 2020
Webinar | 12:00pm – 12:45pm PST / 3:00pm – 3:45pm EST
Discussion with Panelists | 12:45pm – 1:30pm PST / 3:45pm – 4:30pm EST

WEBINAR 1 (Open to all, Free to attend)
Rates of depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use and grief are rising across large segments of the population-particularly for youth, and black, indigenous and people of color. Primary care will be the first responders to this mental health crisis across the country. There has never been a more important time for the integration of behavioral health in primary care for early identification, treatment of mild to moderate conditions, and enhanced referral to specialty care. Integrated care has also shifted to telehealth and there are emerging lessons. Join us for a discussion on the importance of integrated care for supporting public health, behavioral health, and health equity during COVID-19.

Learning Objectives
  1. Participants will be able to describe the central role of integrated care in COVID-19
  2. Participants will be able to describe and share in lessons learned from virtual integration
  3. Participants will review the need, disparities and risks in a rising behavioral health crisis
  4. Participants will identify the role of integrated care in management of coronavirus for vulnerable populations
(Open to all, Free for CBHL Members | $20 for non-members)

Part 2 will be a facilitated, interactive discussion with panelists to ask questions, further explore key themes and to learn from one another. The specific topics will be flexible and tailored to the needs and requests of the attendees, but may include:

  • The role of health equity in integrated care – as a leader, how can I correct systemic inequities and/or ensure I am not further perpetuating disparities
  • The role of health homes and bidirectional integrated care
  • What to do if I am not engaged in integration already-what role can my organization play?
