Game Change! Lessons Learned to Improve Outcomes

Game Change! Lessons Learned to Improve Outcomes

In 2009, the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) funded the Healthy Transitions Initiative (HTI). Seven states were each awarded five-year grants (Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Missouri, Oklahoma, Utah, and Wisconsin) to identify and implement evidence-based models for service delivery to young adults with serious mental health challenges. Learning objectives focus on educating NITT-Healthy Transitions’ team members on the history to integrate services and supports for youth and young adults 16 – 25 with serious mental health conditions and their families. Previously funded transition grantees highlight systems and services, providing orientation to policies that are key to NITT-Healthy Transitions. Presented by Gwen White, NITT-TA Center; Diane Sondheimer, SAMHSA; Melissa Robinson Graves, Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities; Ming Wang, Utah Department of Human Resources; Michelle Vance, NAMI Utah; Alice Preble, Moving Forward (Maine NITT-Healthy Transitions); John Coppola, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Evidence Based Practice Center; Brian McBride, Milwaukee County – Wraparound Milwaukee (WI); Marqus Butler, Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services; Lu Ann Reese, Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Behavioral Health.
