The OPEN MINDS Integration Summit: New Models For Primary Care, Behavioral Health & Social Service Integration

The Children’s Summit: The Future of School-Based Health Services

February 10, 2021 | 8:00am – 3:45pm

Children and youth in underserved communities and those with high service needs have been subject to models of care and service types that seek to integrate those services with educational needs.  These young people often end up in a no-win situation in which either treatment or education is put first.  With the current focus on social determinants of health hitting the mainstream, how are we innovating in assuring that the focus on education and the focus on treatment sit side-by-side?  Join us for  discussions about this ongoing problem and hear about innovations in service delivery and funding that could systemically address this in the future.
