Behavioral health organizations are benefitting from unprecedented access to public and private grant funding, which is being used to support the expansion, enhancement, and sustainability of behavioral health services nationwide. While this is an exciting time to be a behavioral health leader, there are significant risks to simply “chasing funds,” such as mission drift and increased staff burnout within an already overburdened workforce. During this webinar, speakers from HMA and LAPA Fundraising will outline the concrete steps behavioral health organizations can take to ensure they are pursuing the type of grants that support their organization’s overall mission. Speakers will also provide strategies and approaches for successfully winning grant dollars.
Diversion models include a variety of approaches across the continuum of care, including addressing mental health, substance use disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical health and social determinants of health both within criminal justice settings and through community-based programming. This webinar will provide examples of how communities are addressing these issues, including strategies for evaluation and funding that can be tailored to meet the needs of your community.
