How SAMHSA Block Grants Can Support Older Adult Behavioral Health
September 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Free Two-Session Learning Collaborative: How SAMHSA Block Grants Can Support Older Adult Behavioral Health
Session One: September 21, 2 – 3 p.m. ET
Session Two: October 26, 2 – 3 p.m. ET
This two-session Learning Collaborative will describe SAMHSA block grants, and State Block Grant Planning and Advisory Councils, which are a block grant requirement. It will provide an overview of SAMHSA block grants, to include appropriate uses and target populations and describe the roles and responsibilities of Planning and Advisory Councils. The LC will highlight how two states – Oklahoma and Oregon – have successfully used SAMHSA block grants for older adult behavioral health and lessons learned from their experiences. The LC will describe the next steps that states can take to leverage block grants to sustain programs and services for older adults, and share resources that may be helpful for other states.
