CBHL Member Dialogue | Developing an Agenda for Advocacy
April 26, 2022 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm MDT
President Biden announced on March 1 a strategy to address the national behavioral health crisis focused on 1) strengthening system capacity by supporting the workforce, 2) strengthening parity through connections to care, and 3) extending services into new care settings by creating healthy environments.
On Tuesday, March 29, CBHL members met to review the recently announced national behavioral health strategy and to provide recommendations for advocacy. A summary of key themes is available here.
In this session, we will review feedback received during the March 29 conversation, and begin to develop an agenda for advocacy by identifying a set of strategic directions that encompass each of the three components noted above.
