Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) as a Diversion Strategy

Join us as we look at how a Demonstration CCBHC has implemented diversion strategies for people in crisis to decrease emergency department visits, decrease inpatient stays, and divert individuals from involvement with the criminal justice system. In this webinar you will learn about the relationships and communication processes this CCBHC has built with external entities such as hospitals and the police force. You will hear about the proactive steps the agency is taking, such as delivering “crisis intervention training” to the police and conducting primary care screening and monitoring for the clients they serve. And finally, agency leadership will share how they established relationships with social service agencies to mitigate social determinant of health issues for an individual that can contribute to increased ED visits and potential behavioral health crises. By attending this webinar, you will be able to take away diversion strategies that can work in your CCBHC as well.

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How to establish relationships and open communication with hospitals and law enforcement agencies
  • How to create response protocols for use when called upon by these external community-based entities
  • How to work with social service agencies to mitigate SDOH issues
