Training and Conferences
Winter 2012 Change Agent Conference
The theme for the “Winter 2012 Change Agent Conference” is Integrating Behavioral Health with Community Partners.
Many Providers have worked to expand behavioral health services into other settings, especially through the integration with primary care and through efforts to serve recipients with co-occurring disorders, as well as through community planning. But there is still much to be accomplished. The Winter Change Agent will build on the concepts for integrating behavioral health services with other recipient educational, treatment and support services.
