Participants will leave this session with a roadmap for starting any of all of these programs in their home jurisdiction. A historical perspective will educate attendees in the methods used to start these programs in Tucson, Arizona.
During this webinar, the presenter will discuss:
- Using data to justify the creation and expansion of mental health and substance use disorder programs;
- Funding mechanisms; and
- Lessons learned in the creation of these programs.
