2018 Fall Forum

Join CAHA on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, for Integrating Physical Health and Behavioral Health Services, a CAHA Forum addressing community collaboration to facilitate the integration of physical health, mental health, substance use and wellness and prevention services in the Capital Area region.

The forum will feature presentations on integration models in other states, integration efforts underway in Michigan, and existing, viable models to integrate physical health and behavioral health services in the Capital Area.   Two panels will explore the provider experience with integration models in the region and the ways in which health systems and organizations can work toward providing integrative care to individuals with complex needs.

The forum will be held at Eagle Eye Conference Center on Wednesday, September 19. Registration and breakfast will be open at 7:30 am, with the program taking place from 8:00 am to noon. The cost of the program is $45 per person. The program is open to all members of the community and will be of interest to clinical and administrative professionals in the Capital Area Region working for health clinics, health systems, long term care facilities, social services agencies, public health agencies, primary care and specialty medical groups, payers, employers and school based clinics.

As part of the forum, participants will be asked to write down their ideas on the question: What can we do as a community to facilitate integrated care that cannot be done by individual organizations? These ideas will be used to identify opportunities for future collaborative efforts.
