Presentations from the Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy’s past, annual Summer Institutes.
The 18th Annual Summer Institute Integration Accross the Lifespan will be held July 18 - 21, 2017 at Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock, in Sedona, Arizona.
The 17th Annual Summer Institute will be held July 19-22, 2016 at the beautiful Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock, in Sedona Arizona. This year’s theme is Multisytem Approaches to Recovery and Resiliency.
Our theme this year, Innovations & Essentials for Advancing Health, focuses on a wide variety of topics relevant to Arizona's behavioral health, criminal justice, and child welfare professionals, and provides excellent messaging platforms for new and emergent state and federal policies and programmatic approaches. A feature event during Summer Institute, theTown Hall Forum, brings together concerned citizens, and community and state leaders to address critical issues impacting or impacted by behavioral health services.
Our theme, A New Stance on Behavioral Health Care: Resiliency and Whole Health, continues to focus on the massive sea change underway in how behavioral health services (mental health and substance abuse) are organized and delivered. Like it or not, the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act of 2010 (“Obamacare”), is here to stay. This is the single largest, sweeping piece of federal legislation to come out of Washington in 50 years, and its implications for people and families struggling with mental illness and substance use disorders are profound, extending far beyond health care with significant implications for criminal justice, child welfare, and educational systems as well.
Our theme this year, Change the Conversation: Maximizing Opportunities in the Emerging Health Care Landscape, reflects the monumental shift underway in the prioritization of behavioral health care in state and federal policies. As in the past, conference events provide participants with access to information and innovation that can be applied in communities throughout our state, and help prepare for wide scale changes as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act looms on the horizon.
For 2012 the theme is Mission Wellness: Business and Service Alignment for Health Outcomes. Keynote speakers and breakout sessions focused on collaboration and interagency coordination, administration and leadership, service integration, clinical practice, youth and family services, cultural competence, and crisis intervention.
The 2011 theme, Next Generation of Health Care Systems, focused on expectations and predictions of leading experts and national leaders to prepare individuals and organizations for the future. The unprecedented changes and major initiatives in our nation significantly impact the individuals and families we serve and the ways that service providers must conduct their business.
In 2010, the theme, Key Components for Creating Comprehensive Systems of Care: Prevention to Recovery, was designed to highlight the inter-connectedness of our work to ameliorate the impact of undetected and often untreated or under-treated substance use disorders and mental illness.
