- CBHL has Strengthened our Commitment to Equity. We started by looking inward to clarify how we as a Board and an organization will take action to adequately and appropriately address racism as the primary root cause of inequity in health, social and wellbeing outcomes, ground our strategies with a focus on achieving equity and reducing disparities, and share our learnings and opportunities for transformation across disciplines with members.
- Informal mentoring is available to all members who have interested in either being mentored or serving as a mentor. The benefits of a mentor-mentee relationship are endless and support the transfer of knowledge and building leaders of the future.
- CBHL is developing an Equity Grounded Leadership Fellow Program, where the call to action is a shift in leadership focus to equity and anti-racism as the foundation for systems change. We are developing the fellow program and kicking off the inaugural cohort in 2022. Stay tuned for more information and to learn more, contact Holly at email@example.com.
SHARE: CBHL distills information and shares emerging science, innovations, lessons & evidence.
- CBHL members will receive free or reduced cost access to Webinars and other Shared Learning opportunities throughout the year with experts from the field on topics of interest. Our unique format combines didactic learning (hearing directly from the experts) with interactive discussion (engaging in conversation with the experts and your colleagues).
- Interested in the how of systems change? Expected to launch in summer 2022, CBHL is developing a Lean Six Sigma green belt and yellow belt certification for behavioral health leaders. Members will receive priority access and discounts.
