PFCC.Connect virtual informal conversation on Behavioral Health – Engaging Patients and Families


Thursday Jul 18, 2019 01:00 pm to 02:00 pm EDT
United States

There is a growing interest in addressing mental health, substance use disorder and other behavioral health challenges across the continuum. Innovative partnership models are being explored and are showing some promising results. There is a growing recognition that inviting, supporting, and encouraging participation of those with a lived experience is an important aspect of these efforts. How have you engaged individuals and their families in these efforts? What creative solutions are being explored in your organization, community or region? When have patients and families added a unique perspective and helped build coalitions and solutions? How have direct care strategies helped strengthen engagement of those receiving care? Come join a conversation that will explore these issues and uncover the best practices that you and your colleagues/partners have discovered.

These informal conversations are participatory in nature, building on the experience and strengths of those who join the call. We do not do a presentation but rather let the discussion be guided by what the participants want to learn more about through the sharing of our collective experiences. Come join the conversation to learn from others and to share your successes and challenges. Mary Minniti, Senior Policy and Program Specialist, will facilitate this discussion.

If you are interested but unable to attend live, I still encourage you to register because all registrants will receive a link to the recording of the discussion a few weeks after the event. The recording and any resources will also be posted in PFCC.Connect for all members to watch and/or refer back to. If you have further questions, please email me at or Mary Minniti at
