In this webinar, we’ll share the stages of development that organizations experience on the way to data-informed decision-making, and how to help your team overcome the obstacles at each crossroads. Improving your effectiveness with operational data is important, and it’s easy to get stuck responding to every new external reporting requirement and never get around to looking at data that really matters.
At our March Member Roundtable, we discussed opportunities for families, consumers, and advocates to join forces and align around areas to collaborate. In particular, where people or places have concerns about public health, mental health, and/or public safety, leading to forced situations. This dialogue led to a brief discussion around alternatives to forced situations.
Our April Member Roundtable will deep dive alternatives in more detail, with Steve Miccio (People USA) and Harvey Rosenthal (New York Association for Psychiatric Rehabilitation) leading the discussion. Join us for a conversation with your CBHL colleagues to learn more about and to contribute to alternatives to forced situations.

Self-direction, also called self-directed care, is an alternative to traditional service delivery models in which participants control an individual budget, create a person-centered plan, and purchase goods and services they feel will best help them to achieve their goals. In this roundtable, two people who self-direct will share how the expanded choice and control in self-direction has impacted their lives. They’ll be joined by a researcher who will describe outcomes, implementation facilitators and barriers, and best practice in self-direction across the country. Join us for a 90-minute session to engage with the panelists in dialogue.
This month’s roundtable dialogue will focus on policy advocacy, particularly at the local and state level, as a lever for systems change.
We are excited to be joined by Dawn Yuster, a civil rights lawyer, with over 20 years of experience leading campaigns to win policy change, leading and collaborating with coalitions and state and local government agencies, and developing and implementing policies on mental health, juvenile/criminal, school discipline and police and education justice issues. Dawn also has life-long experience as an individual with mental health challenges navigating and advocating for changes in the mental health care system, particularly for low-income students, people of color, and people who are incarcerated, homeless, and disproportionately targeted by the police.
Join us to learn from Dawn’s experience – and to share your own - advocating for behavioral health policy change at the local and state level to influence systems change. Dawn will share real-life examples and strategies and will engage in dialogue with the audience on how to advocate for policy change in your community or region.
