    Information about the Learning Community

    The Child and Family-Focused Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Learning Community is a monthly peer learning opportunity designed to support increased access to and improved quality of CCBHCs in meeting the needs of youth and families. The learning community features national experts and CCBHC representatives from across the country and is focused on design and implementation approaches for CCBHCs.

    The Learning Community is a part of the CCBHC-E National Training and Technical Assistance Center, established by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing (National Council), and funded by SAMHSA, to support the expansion of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics across the U.S. The National Council has partnered with the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors and The Institute for Innovation and Implementation, in the UMB School of Social Work, to create the learning community as an important component of this technical assistance effort. Certificates of attendance are available.

    Participants in the learning community will:

    • Understand the value of children's services and the framework and role of child-serving systems
    • Identify design and implementation approaches CCBHCs can establish to meet the unique needs of children, youth and young adults with behavioral health needs and their families

    Registration: Registration for the learning community is now open! Please go here to sign up today and review the guide to enrollment.

    Target audiences: This learning community is designed to support CCBHC-Expansion grantee program and clinical staff. Although content is primarily targeted for clinics, we also welcome participation from state and community partners.

    Timeline: The learning community will operate from February-September. We request that organizations signing up plan to participate in the full community.

    Curriculum: Topics to be covered during the learning community include child-serving systems and opportunities for partnering with youth and families; service array, including Mobile Response and Stabilization Services and care coordination; screening and assessment; quality and reporting; and staffing considerations and workforce development.
