Beyond Impact Statements: Addressing Behavioral Health Disparities
Wednesday, September 27, 2017 | 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm ET
This learning community session will focus on addressing behavioral health disparities in system of care (SOC) expansion. SAMHSA requires grantees to submit Behavioral Health Disparity Impact Statements (BHDIS) within 60 days of new awards. This session will review the BHDIS, including its importance, how to gather data, and statement components. Beyond the BHDIS, presenters will focus on approaches for using data and BHDIS to address disparities on an ongoing basis. New SOC expansion grantees are encouraged to attend, as well as any jurisdictions interested in strengthening their strategies to eliminate disparities.
