Join us for an informative webinar on how clinical community partners can work together to support the behavioral health needs of service members, Veterans, and their families. You will hear from Federal and community-based speakers on the following topics:

The Veterans Comprehensive Prevention, Access to Care, and Treatment (COMPACT) Act of 2020: The COMPACT Act supports implementation of a new Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) policy that provides access to free emergency suicide care for Veterans in non-VA care settings. The goal of the COMPACT Act is to reduce Veteran suicide by guaranteeing no-cost care in times of crisis. https://news.va.gov/press-room/va-provides-free-emergency-suicide-prevention-care-to-nearly-50000/

Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) services to Veterans: CCBHCs are funded to bring comprehensive community-based mental health and substance use services to individuals in communities. The statutory criteria requires that CCBHCs provide nine core services, including community-based behavioral health care and recovery supports for Veterans and certain members of the U.S. Armed Forces. https://www.samhsa.gov/certified-community-behavioral-health-clinics

CCBHC/VA Care Coordination: Care coordination is a critical element of services for CCBHCs. You will hear about how one CCBHC in Texas has partnered with their local VA medical center, supporting collaborative behavioral health interventions for Veterans in the community.
