The Road Ahead: Challenges And Opportunities for Behavioral Health Care During the Implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Nov. 7-8, 2013

This is an invitation-only event.
This year's symposium will explore progress being made toward achieving the goal of increasing access to affordable, high-quality mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment services as the so-called "Affordable Care Act" is implemented. A series of presentations, panel discussions, and workgroup sessions will explore three areas of key importance: outreach and enrollment, access to care, and service delivery.
Members of the public are invited to watch the live webcast of the symposium and to join the discussion by following @CarterCenter  and using the hashtag #CarterMH13.
An agenda for watching the live webcast will be posted on this page soon.

History of the Symposium
Read and watch materials from the 2012 symposium, Beyond Stigma: Advancing the Social Inclusion of People with Mental Illness >
In 1985, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter initiated the annual Rosalynn Carter Symposium on Mental Health Policy to bring together national leaders in mental health to focus and coordinate their efforts on an issue of common concern.
The symposia have been a unique opportunity each year for this leadership to hear remarks from a variety of individuals with expertise on a selected topic; discuss diverse viewpoints in an open forum; identify areas of consensus and potential collaborations as well as points of divergence; and to recommend action steps for symposium participants to move an agenda forward.
Held each November, the symposia have examined such issues as mental illness and the elderly, child and adolescent illness, family coping, financing mental health services and research, treating mental illness in the primary care setting, and stigma and mental illness.
In addition to the symposium, the Mental Health Program hosts another annual meeting to tackle pressing issues in mental health policy, the Rosalynn Carter Georgia Mental Health Forum, held each May since 1995 for state mental health organizations.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
