The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Office of Behavioral Health Equity (OBHE) invites you to join the second Behavioral Health Equity Challenge Winners Showcase on Wednesday, October 11 at 3:00-4:30 pm EDT. After the success of the first Showcase in September, we organized this second event in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month! During the Behavioral Health Equity Challenge Winners Showcase Part II, four of the ten Challenge winners — all serving the Hispanic/Latinx community — will share their innovative strategies, lessons learned from implementation, and recommendations for replication in other communities. CBOs, state and federal leaders, and behavioral health leaders are invited to join the Showcase to learn from and engage in Q&A with these Challenge Winners.
Earlier this year, SAMHSA launched the “Behavioral Health Equity Challenge: Outreach and Engagement Strategies for Underserved Racial and Ethnic Communities” with the goal of identifying and highlighting outreach and engagement strategies community-based organizations (CBOs) use to increase access to behavioral health services for racially and ethnically diverse, underserved communities.
To see the previously hosted Challenge Winner Showcase, visit NNEDShare.
The event will also be shared on Facebook Live at fb.com/nned.net and closed captioning will be available through Zoom.
