The First-Ever Gathering of Behavioral Health Leaders from Community Health Centers: Come Meet and Share With Leaders From Around The Country!

Join us for a unique full-day seminar in behavioral health leadership at community health centers (CHCs) following the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU)’s 2024 Conference, Envisioning a More Equitable Future: Advancing Stakeholder-Centered Innovation! On August 7 with the support of a grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts, with support from Bloomberg Philanthropies, this in-depth seminar and networking event will highlight best practices in CHC behavioral health leadership, suicide prevention, and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment.

National experts will discuss holistic approaches to behavioral health at health centers—from understanding finances and population health to integrated transdisciplinary care—as well as case studies in medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) at CHCs, best practices for creating cultures of Suicide Safer Care at CHCs, and more.
