New Jersey’s Children’s System of Care: Peer Support in an Integrated System of Care
Tuesday, June 21, 2018 | 3–4:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Join SAMHSA for a Technical Assistance Coalition webinar with the National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health to learn about New Jersey’s Children’s System of Care for children and youth with serious emotional disturbances. The presenters will discuss how expanding the array of services and integrating those services through a single point of entry has helped reduce high-intensity and out-of-home treatments. The presenters will also provide an overview of the program, and discuss the role of assessment and the key components that allow for effective services across populations. Additionally, the presentation will identify specific approaches, strategies, and curriculums used in the New Jersey System of Care.
Beating the Clock: Reducing the Duration of Untreated Psychosis
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 | 2–3:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Join SAMHSA for a Technical Assistance Coalition webinar with the National Alliance on Mental Illness for a discussion on the duration of untreated psychosis (the time between the onset of psychosis and accessing appropriate treatment). The shorter the period of untreated psychosis, the better the outcomes for people; therefore, the webinar presenters will discuss strategies for engaging people in evidence-based, first-episode psychosis programs; building awareness through targeted outreach; collaborating with systems partners; and encouraging help-seeking. The presenters will discuss insights on how these strategies work together to make a positive impact on a person’s trajectory of wellness.
Criminal Justice and Serious Mental Illness: Moving to Patient-Centered Care
Thursday, June 28, 2018 | 12:30–2 p.m. Eastern Time
Join SAMHSA for a Technical Assistance Coalition webinar with the National Council for Behavioral Health for a discussion on the importance of patient-centered care for individuals with serious mental illness who are involved with the criminal justice system. The webinar presenter will highlight the factors contributing to the current status of patient-centered care in the criminal justice system, gaps in the systems, how to improve access to care in the community, and the role of diversion programs such as Mental Health Courts and Drug Courts in decreasing criminalization of serious mental illness and substance use disorders.
