Behavioral Health: State Innovation Series

April 7, 2022 - May 18, 2022 / LinkedIn Live

Part 1: Behavioral Health Workforce Challenges

The first of a 3-part series on behavioral health workforce challenges, HMA’s Dr. Gina Lasky and Brie Reimann from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing discuss their joint work to support states in addressing workforce shortages. Holly Salazar from The College for Behavioral Health Leadership talks about their Equity-Grounded Leadership Fellow Program and integrated health initiatives to train the workforce of tomorrow.

Part 2: Improving Our Behavioral Health System: State Innovations

The second broadcast in our 3-part series on behavioral health, HMA’s Dr. Gina Lasky, Morgan Medlock, MD, MDiv, MPH, the newly appointed Behavioral Health Commissioner for the State of Colorado, and Aaron J. Walker with the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) discuss the critical work being done to help states respond to workforce burnout challenges to drive clinical transformation.

Part 3: Behavioral Health: Future Value Based Models

Care delivery models for behavioral health are outdated, and current payment models are a bottleneck for innovation and reform. Technology is playing a bigger role as demand grows, but it’s not a magical solution to all of our problems. On this webinar, Andrew Croshaw talks with HMA’s Gina Lasky and Katie DiPerna Cook from Headspace Health (formerly Ginger) about the positive impact provider-level disruption and new payment models can have on patient outcomes.
