June 2007 Symposium

Moving Forward: Designing and Financing Effective Mental Health Services in an Era of Transformation

A one-day symposium convened on Tuesday, June 12, 2007
Spurred by the President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, ambitious efforts are underway in a number of states to transform the public mental health care delivery system. The Center for Health Program Development and Management sponsored a symposium on June 12, 2007, at UMBC to examine the evolving mental health system, how efforts to diffuse evidence-based practices and better coordinate services across agencies and branches of medicine are paying off, and the extent to which Medicaid managed care and other newer programming and financing strategies are helping transform the system.
