Healthcare Payment Reform and Behavioral Health Safety Net
- What’s on the Horizon for the Community Behavioral
Healthcare System (PART ONE continued in #305)
Board Track À

As the United States is moving towards major healthcare reform
to address the access, cost and quality problems facing
Americans, there has been limited healthcare reform design
work focused on the needs of Americans with serious mental
health and substance use disorders and the challenges faced by
Community Behavioral Healthcare Organizations.
To help address this gap, Mr. Jarvis has been working to
integrate payment reform efforts in general healthcare, funding
structures from Federally Qualified Health Centers, emerging
trends in healthcare innovation, and a deep understanding of
public behavioral health financing to develop a conceptual
design of how public behavioral health ought to be funded and
describe what steps are needed to achieve this vision.

Effective Treatment for Mentally Ill Offenders in Transition
Community Transition R

Approximately 15% of offenders transitioning from jail into the
community require mental health services. Effective treatment
dramatically reduces recidivism. Effective treatment requires
integration of services to address mental health and substance
abuse but must also overcome programmatic barriers,
individual, family, and community values that impede
participation in treatment.
