SCHOOL-BASED COMMUNITIES OF CARE: FROM PREVENTION TO RECOVERY

The last two years have greatly impacted school success for both students and educators. Schools and districts are striving for recovery from the disruption of COVID-19 while having new insight into the impact of enduring stresses such as interpersonal adversity, toxic stress associated with racism, oppression, poverty and inequities, and/or state and world events. Trauma-responsive, equity-focused strategies bolster school-based communities of care where recovery and wellness are within reach for students and staff.

In this session we will hear from innovators in the field who have implemented practices that support resiliency, recovery and healing. Experienced leaders representing Community Schools, the School Mental Health Resource & Training Center (SMHRT), Syracuse Promise Zone, and the Consortium on Trauma, Illness and Grief (TIG) in Schools will share their insights on what matters most to rise to the challenge of these times.

RACISM IS A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS

Across the country, local and state leaders have recognized racism as the public health crisis it is. While resolutions and formal statements are not sufficient, they are an essential first step. These resolutions call attention to racism and shift the narrative in ways that can drive changes in practices, policies, laws, and allocation of resources.

Please join us as our esteemed panel shares their unique perspectives, as well as ways you can take strategic action to change racist policies and practices to advance racial equity, as we work together to eliminate disparities in health and wellness.

RESHAPING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

Designating May as Mental Health Awareness Month serves to underscore the importance of mental health and to remind us that nearly one in five Americans lives with a mental health condition, and while we have made progress in expanding mental health services, many communities still face barriers in accessing the mental health services they need. These challenges have become more pronounced over the past two years as we’ve faced the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing to highlight disparities faced by communities of color and those living in poverty.

In this panel discussion, we’ll hear from experts at the state and local levels about important, innovative efforts to reshape the way we conceptualize, deliver, and fund mental health services in New York State.

TRANSFORMING CRISIS RESPONSE SYSTEMS

This presentation discusses the work that CCSI’s Institute for Police, Mental Health & Community Collaboration is doing in conjunction with the NYS Office of Mental Health to transform crisis response systems to be less reliant on police officers as first responders to individuals in emotional distress. We also discuss complementary efforts that ensure law enforcement officers are prepared when they are the first responders. In addition to describing the state-wide Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) program, we highlight the innovative Mobile Access Program (MAP) that equips police and mental health clinicians with iPads to enable rapid and remote evaluations of distressed individuals.  A summary of the positive outcomes of the program is also shared.

RACIAL EQUITY AND DATA INNOVATION

The focus of this webinar is simple, but so complex! How are we using data in innovative ways to make progress toward racial equity?

This panel spans across all levels of care, from a community provider to the New York State Department of Health. We will ground ourselves in the concepts of racial equity and data-informed learning and review how these two approaches are in tension inherently, yet mutually dependent. Each panelist will share how their organization is innovating around their data-oriented work to make progress toward racial equity, including Medicaid tools for mental health providers, elevating hope in direct care, enhancing demographic information in our health-related data systems, and centering community data collection around racial equity.
