Provider Engagement Sessions

In the summer of 2019, Dr. Barbara J. Bazron, Director of the Department of Behavioral Health, invited providers to attend one of four listening sessions to learn more about their views of the current behavioral health landscape and their suggestions for potential system improvements. Dr. Bazron invited mental health and substance use disorder provider CEOs, members of their staff, and members of the Behavioral Health Planning Council to these sessions. A number of individuals in care were also in attendance. The October 2019 Final Summary Report of the Director’s Listening Sessions with Providers includes a summary of recurring themes and recommendations presented during these events. The appendices include the detailed notes from each session.
