On Demand: 988 In Every State: The People We Know

Southeast MHTTC Data Visualizations

Region IV is the largest HHS region, comprised of eight states and 26% of the U.S. population. These states have large rural populations, high poverty rates, and face racial and cultural disparities in care. In addition, the Southeast states have considerable clinical, geographic, workforce, and health system differences and often score below the median on state rankings from advocacy groups including the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Mental Health America (MHA). These factors are important considerations when planning mental health care and support services; however, understanding these influences separately can be challenging. The Southeast MHTTC Data Visualization Project provides information on Region IV priorities in an easy to understand graphical format.

Addressing Behavioral Health Challenges in Integrated Settings (Series Resources)

Resources from this Series:

This interactive multi-session training opportunity for NC community health center providers addresses everyday challenges experienced by clinicians treating patients who present with behavioral health conditions. Participants learn or refresh their knowledge and application of skills in integrated care settings across the patient engagement process: from the initial primary care provider (PCP) referral to measuring outcomes as treatment concludes. Sessions consist of one-hour trainings complemented by supplemental enhanced learning sessions in which participants take a deeper dive through Q&A with the instructor, small group discussions, and shared learning.

Challenge #1: Engaging PCPs in referrals to integrated care (4/3)

Challenge #2: Evidence based brief interventions in the primary care setting (i.e., brief vs. traditional, adapted DBT skills refresher, WET, etc) (4/17)

Challenge #3: Interventions with special populations in primary care integration (i.e., Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Perinatal, SUD) (5/1)

Challenge #4: How do I know this is effective: Using measurement informed care (5/15)

Challenge #5: Cost-effective strategies to increase access to psychiatric expertise (5/29)
