AMCHP Forms Team to Help Agencies Address Challenges in Mental Health
To strategically align and prioritize mental health activities at AMCHP with the needs of its members, AMCHP has created an internal mental health team. The team will leverage AMCHP's position as a Title V membership organization along with its expertise in creating and supporting jurisdiction-wide collaborations in order to address common challenges in mental health.
The team will focus on initiatives that most affect the lives and health of individuals, families, and communities, with a special emphasis on reducing health disparities. It will help identify and spread evidence-based practices as well as promote the integration of systems, enhanced access to services, and application of quality improvement principles.
