Moving Forward: Designing and Financing
Effective Mental Health Services in an Era of Transformation
Center for Health Program Development and Management at
University of Maryland, Baltimore Coutny
Tuesday, June 12, 2007
8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Delivering coordinated, cost-effective, and high-quality mental health services presents significant challenges for states and localities. Spurred by the President's New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, ambitious efforts are underway in a number of states and smaller jurisdictions to transform the public mental health care delivery system. Join fellow policymakers and health services researchers to examine the evolving mental health system, how efforts to diffuse evidence-based practices and better coordinate services across agencies and branches of medicine are paying off, and the extent to which Medicaid managed care and other newer programming and financing strategies are helping transform the system. The keynote speaker will be Michael Hogan, recently appointed Commissioner of the New York State Office of Mental Health. A. Kathryn Power , Director of the Center for Mental Health Services at SAMHSA, will lead off the afternoon sessions with a luncheon address.
