How do racism and oppression show up in behavioral health?
As a leader, how can I use this knowledge to challenge historical and current practices, policies, and norms to advance health equity?
Join us together with Ebony Chambers, CBHL’s Director of Equity-Grounded Leadership, at our CBHL Member Roundtable on September 20, to explore these questions. This roundtable is the second in a series of six bi-monthly dialogues to deep-dive each of the Principles of Change.
On September 28, a dialogue will be held to discuss the enormous value of the meaningful engagement of youth and young adults in the design, development, and implementation of programs or services intended for them.
This roundtable dialogue is for members of the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership (IIMHL), the International Initiative for Disability Leadership (IIDL), and the College for Behavioral Health Leadership (CBHL).
Health Equity, Alternative Payment Models, addressing Social Determinants of Health; these are all “north stars” in healthcare, grounded in data collection and metrics. To achieve any standard or address proper patient care coordination, the technology platforms used to enter information must be used accurately, consistently and be configured properly. At the same time, existing features and functions within the technology must also be aligned with regulatory and reporting needs. The on-going maintenance and management of any database requires a governance grounded in cross-functional management and with standards to ensure accuracy and integrity of use. Too often, provider healthcare delivery has been unable to successfully implement these systems and maintain consistent standards and use over time.
This presentation will provide an overview of the common barriers in achieving data integrity and an overview of proven methods for data governance. We will explore practical steps organizations can take to assess current structure and management practices along with addressing the needs of care delivery teams.
Communities and organizations throughout the country have identified challenges and devised innovative approaches to tackle the workforce crisis. Nonetheless, these strategies often lack coordination and dissemination, hindering their potential for widespread impact.

This approach is built upon a collective impact framework designed to unify stakeholders across sectors, leveraging existing recommendations and innovative solutions to tackle the crisis.

Each of the five Principles is accompanied by the necessary knowledge, values, skills, and operational practice behaviors associated with each principle.
Join us together with Ebony Chambers, CBHL’s Director of Equity-Grounded Leadership, at our CBHL Member Roundtable on November 8, to explore these questions. This roundtable is the third in a series of six bi-monthly dialogues to deep-dive each of the Principles of Change.
