Title of Collaborative Activity:

Practice-Based Research and Implementation: Developing a Framework for Collaboration to Reduce Mental Health Disparities

Description of Collaborative Activity:

In September 2014, NIMH and SAMSHA convened a webinar to enhance understanding of the development of behavioral health services collaborative approaches. Such approaches will accelerate the dissemination of research-based material and treatment information into communities. NIMH and SAMSHA brought together ten leaders in the field as primary discussants and 15 participants to engage in an exchange of ideas. The conversations set the stage for identifying ways to align ongoing efforts to address disparities in mental health outcomes across diverse populations. The discussant information will be used to develop an action plan and help to enhance the partnership between NIMH and SAMSHA.
