Community service leaders will present their experience developing and maintaining partnerships in SAMHSA grants to “Enhance Older Adult Behavioral Services.” Partnerships between behavioral health services and Area Agencies on Aging and community aging service providers will be highlighted along with partnerships with primary health care, hospitals, consumer organizations and others. Some partnerships are structured to extend behavioral health service reach to new population groups and to access additional client services. Many partnerships are developed from the outset to help sustain and finance services after the SAMHSA grants end. Learn about new types of partners, how to interest different types of organizations and ways to reward partners for sustained success.
This webinar is part of a series developed by the Behavioral Health Older Americans Technical Assistance Center through funding from SAMHSA, in collaboration with AOA.
