March 26, 2015 (Portland) – Dana Health Education Center, 22 Bramhall Street, Portland
Consumer Council System of Maine and NAMI Maine are working in partnership with Maine Quality Counts to help Mainers understand Behavioral Health Homes. As a provider of technical assistance, NAMI Maine and the Consumer Council System of Maine are looking to see what parents raising children with serious emotional disturbances and adults with a diagnosed mental illness think about Behavioral Health Homes. Behavioral Health Homes are an effort to integrate physical and mental health care for people with serious mental illness and children with serious emotional disturbance. The hope is that Behavioral Health Homes will lead to more holistic care and better health and mental health outcomes. The work is supported by State Innovation Model funding through the DHHS Office of MaineCare Services.
Part of how individuals and parents will be able have their questions or concerns addressed is to attend a BHH Education Forum. There are nine forums scheduled around the state that individuals can register to attend by visiting NAMI Maine’s website or contacting Courtney at .
