Progressive's CARF Invitation

Progressive received an invitation to the Behavioral Health, Child and Youth Services and Opioid Treatment Programs Webinar: Transition/Discharge: Obtaining More Positive Outcomes.  This webinar will detail the transition/discharge process in an effort to heighten understanding of the importance of persons moving from one level of service to another. Of key importance is consideration of how the active involvement of the person served is required to enhance the gains made during the treatment process. We will explore some of the steps in the process from the time of admission to discharge, the proactive actions an organization should be taking to improve the overall quality of treatment provided, and how to ensure that all of this is documented.

The NNED will support information sharing, training and technical assistance among organizations and communities dedicated to the behavioral health and well-being of diverse communities. The NNED will identify and link "pockets of excellence" in reducing disparities and promoting behavioral health equity. It will reduce the tendency to “reinvent the wheel.”

It also has been used successfully in adaptations with adolescents and with Latino families, including a recently-completed seven-year study for the National Institute of Mental Health.
